About 100 people attended Saturday morning’s Open Garden event at the Weston Road Community Gardens  in the North 40 area that Wellesley College is looking to sell in order to fund big renovations on its campus.

Gardener and organizer Michael Tobin says proceeds from a lemonade stand and donated vegetables from gardeners were given to the Save the North 40 group. Cherry tomatoes were given to all.

Another guided North 40 walk is slated for Saturday, Sept. 13 from 9-10am.Weston Road Community GardensWeston Road Community Gardens
