Herb / Medicinal Garden Grand Opening

Written By Sarah Oakes, FGS Member

 

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our Herb / Medicinal Garden Grand Opening! It was a fantastic celebration of this special new public garden and a way to thank all those who contributed to making it a reality. Thanks to the Mission Hill Fenway Neighborhood Trust (MHFNT) for believing in this project and providing $16,000 of support. Also, so many of our members put in countless hours (many back-breaking!). We hope that you are as proud as we all are of what we’ve accomplished together. This will be a great community meeting and learning space for all of us and our park visitors. The Mayor of Boston helped with the ribbon cutting, and local restaurants like El Pelon Taquaria, Thortons Bar & Grille, and Tapestry donated refreshments for the event. Come check out the herb/medicinal plantings, and perhaps learn something new about medicinal plants.
