Mass Hort is steward of the 36-acrea Elm Bank estate, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1996, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Massachusetts Horticultural Society signed a 99-year lease for a portion of the Elm Bank Reservation. This beautiful property has enabled the Society to introduce horticulture and hands-on education to thousands of people. Massachusetts Horticultural Society, founded in 1829, is America’s oldest horticultural society. The Society’s mission is to develop the public’s enjoyment, appreciation and understanding of plants, gardens, design, and the environment. Mass Hort is a 501 (c)(3) educational nonprofit and is supported by membership, sponsorships, and donations. The historic and contemporary gardens at The Gardens at Elm Bank demonstrate how plants and design are an integral part of everyday life for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.
Tickets can be purchased for $100 online at masshort.org/gardenparty2018 or by calling Elaine at 617-933-4945.
