The Belmont Garden Club invites the public to participate in “Cultivating Community – A Tour of Gardens” on Sunday, June 9 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The self-guided tour will include nine private gardens and the Woodlands Garden located at the Belmont Public Library representing the Belmont community.
There will be scheduled demonstrations at the garden stops on containers and floral design, composting, the work of the club’s junior gardeners, and music and art in the gardens.
Tickets are $30 before Sunday (available at Westcott Mercantile stores in Cushing Square and Belmont Center or from a Garden Club member at 617-484-4889) or $35 day of the tour (pick up at the Belmont Public Library).
Proceeds from the tour along with sponsorships will help provide the Belmont community with horticultural enhancements and the continued beautification of community spaces. It will also assist our club programs such as:
- Junior gardeners,
- gardening workshops at the Belmont Manor Nursing facility, and
- scholarships presented to Belmont High School students.
