Celebrate National Public Gardens Day (May 11, 2012) at Mt. Auburn Cemetery

The folks at Mount Auburn Cemetery asked me to spread the word about their plans for  National Public Gardens Day, coming up on Friday, May 11, 2012:

“We have a whole day’s worth of activities planned to raise public awareness about the great community resources available in public gardens (Mount Auburn is classified not only as a public garden, but also as an arboretum, and is always free to the public). We’ll be offering a free Early Morning Horticulture Club walk at 7 AM, followed by a proclamation by the President of the Watertown Town Council. We’ll then launch our smartphone app which is loaded with free self-guided tours throughout the Cemetery, and then our President will lead a special horticultural  highlights tour emphasizing the diverse plant life in our landscape.”

Hopefully the rain will end by Friday and we’ll have a beautiful day to celebrate our public gardens!
