Mrs. Greenthumbs Day Returns

Mark your calendars. Mrs. Greenthumbs Day, is only eleven days away. The event honoring the memory of Hudson's most talented, most exuberant, and most famous gardener, Cassandra Danz, who had a local radio show, appeared on national television, and wrote books as Mrs. Greenthumbs, happens on Sunday, July 17.

As it has in the past, Mrs. Greenthumbs Day will be observed with an open garden day in Hudson. Fourteen gardens will be welcoming visitors from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The gardens are located all over the city--south side, north side, upstreet, and downstreet. It's a rare opportunity to view gardens in Hudson that are hidden behind buildings and fences and to get inside gardens that can only be longingly glimpsed from the sidewalk.

Mrs. Greenthumbs Day is free and open to all, but there will be an opportunity at each garden to show your appreciation and help with the preservation and beautification of Hudson's public spaces by making a contribution to the Mrs. Greenthumbs "Hedge Fund." The donations received from visitors on the tour in 2014 helped to hire a landscape architect to design a ramp to provide universal access to Promenade Hill. 

A map showing the location of the fourteen gardens will be available soon--digitally right here on The Gossips of Rivertown and in print at various locations. That map, a comfy pair of walking shoes, and a hat to protect you from the damaging effects of the sun will be all you'll need to enjoy some of the secret and not so secret gardens of Hudson.
