Open garden tour to piggyback on North 40 trail walk

Weston Road community garden, 2014Weston Road community gardeners plan to host an open garden tour on Saturday, Aug. 9 from 9-11am, complementing the North 40 guided trail walk organized by the Wellesley Trails Committee from 9-10am that day. The walk begins and ends at the Morses Pond entrance at Turner Road, and makes a stop at the community gardens.

The gardeners plan to share their talents, knowledge and gardens with those interested in checking them out. Wellesley College has provided use of the gardening land for over 60 years and more than 60 Wellesley families and community organizations (with a long waiting list) use this land to eat locally grown food, maintain open space, and provide weekly donations of produce to the Wellesley Food Pantry.  There’s concern by gardeners about what will happen to the North 40 property depending upon who buys the land from Wellesley College.Save the North 40 sign
