Celebrating 25 Years of a New England Tradition
The famed Concord spokesman for individualism and self-reliance, Ralph Waldo Emerson, once wrote: “When I go into a good garden, I think, if it were mine, I should never go out of it.” This year the Concord Museum is celebrating 25 years of “going into good gardens” on the annual Concord Garden Tour. The Museum’s Guild of Volunteers has organized this pre-eminent garden tour, an unequalled opportunity both to share in the delights of beautiful and historic private gardens in Concord and to support the Museum’s Education Programs which annually serve 8,000 students from 85 Massachusetts communities and 22 states.
The Museum’s Garden Tour has become a New England tradition for garden lovers from near and far. The Garden Tour will take place on two days, Friday and Saturday, June 6 and June 7, rain or shine. Each of the private gardens reflects the individual interests and passions of the owners and their families and will inspire both new gardeners designing their first perennial bed and accomplished landscapers with acres of “garden rooms.”
The tour of Concord-area gardens is self-guided and self-paced, beginning each day at 9:00 a.m. and continuing until 4:00 p.m. Garden-goers should arrive at the Museum to pick up their maps prior to starting out. Tickets are good for either or both days, but each garden may only be visited once. No refunds; no photography.
Advance purchase discount price through May 30: $30 Concord Museum members, $35 Non-members. Tickets can be purchased online at the Concord Museum website (www.concordmuseum.org). Or you can call 978-369-9763 (ext.216)
