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.
The event, organized to increase awareness of the community gardens, complemented a Wellesley Trails Committee guided tour of the North 40 trails. That walk attracted about 50 people.
Another guided North 40 walk is slated for Saturday, Sept. 13 from 9-10am.
