The tour is free and open to all, but if you are inspired to show your appreciation, you are encouraged to make a contribution at any (or all) of the gardens to the Mrs. Greenthumbs "Hedge Fund." The fund is dedicated to restoring and enhancing Hudson's public parks. In the past, the fund has replaced dead trees in Thurston Park and gone toward hiring a landscape architect to design a ramp to provide universal access to Hudson's historic Promenade Hill.
