Home Sweet Home - The Art of the Garden: Inspiration Grows Here

Celebrate The Trustees’ public gardens, a living documentary of Massachusetts horticulture and design traditions. Many of these gardens are part of the landscapes of Trustees historic sites, the former homes of historical figures, literati, titans of industry, political leaders, artists and more and span a 300-year timeline from the Colonial Era to the Modern Movement. 

Come experience all the beauty, history, and unique stories contained within each home, as well as the exquisitely designed gardens and stunning natural landscapes. Special tours, gardening and family-friendly activities and refreshments will be offered.

Home Sweet Home takes place Saturday, May 19 from 10AM-4PM at ten Trustees historic sites for FREE. Visit www.thetrustees.org/homesweethome for more details.
