The 2017 Twilight Garden Party will be held Tuesday, June 6th, from 6 – 8:30 pm at the “Sitting Grove” in The Prudential. This outdoor event will be catered by the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Boston. If we have bad weather we will relocate to the Mandarin, but we are naturally hopeful to be able to celebrate outdoors. The space is along the corridor that leads to Lord & Taylor, with lovely trees and shrubs protected from sun and wind.
The Garden Club of the Back Bay is committed to the trees and greens spaces of our historic Back Bay neighborhood. We work hard all year to keep the trees healthy and beautiful for future generations of Bostonians and visitors. Trees provide us with healthy air to breathe and a shady path to walk. During 2016 we were very busy making sure our mission is accomplished by:
Planting new street trees in partnership with the Parks Department.
Spending over $40,000 for planting, inoculating, and pruning street trees.
Selling and installing tree-pit fences. We have exceeded a total of 140 fences sold and installed. The mulch and fences not only beautify the streetscape, but also protect the trees and tree roots from damage and compaction.
Volunteering to water trees on the Mall, plant window boxes at the Women’s Lunch Place, tend front gardens at neighborhood not for profit properties.
This year we plan to launch a new website, BackBayTrees.org, that will serve as a visual, online database of all trees in the Back Bay.
