The Gardeners' Gathering brings together gardeners from across the region to kick off Boston’s gardening season. As the city’s largest educational forum for urban gardeners, the Gardeners’ Gathering is an opportunity for people to share ideas, network & learn. Whether you want to hone your gardening skills; connect with the Boston green community; or start your own community garden, you’ll find what you’re looking for! 

This event is free and open to all. No RSVP is necessary.

The opening plenary will feature the popular Annual Community Garden Awards presentations by Mayor Walsh. Individuals, garden groups, and non-profit organizations that have made significant contributions to the Boston gardening community will be honored with the “Hall of Fame,” “Rookie Gardener of the Year,” and “Most Valuable Gardener” awards.

The Gardeners’ Gathering offers more than two dozen skill-building workshops for both vegetable and ornamental gardeners, from novices to experts. See the full program here: http://bit.ly/2Frr8Bn
