4th Green Belmont Garden Tour – A Success!

Thank you to all the Gardeners on the Green Belmont Garden Tour (4th Annual!!)

Another successful tour full was had on Sunday with great thanks to lead organizers Jeri Weiss, Martha Cohen and Nancy Forbes, and many volunteers including Sarah Wang, Judy Otto, Kathy Martin, Emma Thurston, Joan Teebagy, Mike Chase, Peggy Kornegger, Lucia Gates, Nikolay Koumpikav, Jessica Gotsch, Olivia Cronin and many others who helped make it a success.

Belmont Green Gardens stand out because of their unique and diverse approaches including hoop-houses, compost fanaticism, beautiful perennials, delicious annuals, a bunny tractor, chickens and more. These gardeners epitomize so many of the qualities we value in Belmont. If you missed it, you can still download the brochure: Sustainable Belmont Green Garden Tour 2014 or  follow this link to our Google Map of the Green Garden Tour 2014 (descriptions are the same). We hope to do it again next year and will surely have new perspectives and enduring favorites. THANK YOU for attending!

A final big THANK YOU to Mary Beth Calnan, Town Recycling Coordinator and all the folks at the Department of Public Works for making one Brave New Composter” available for our free raffle. image002DPW sells these for $25 (a bargain).

Congratulations Mary Baker, winner of our compost bin. We know she will enjoy it thoroughly in her new home where she is quickly making roots!
