Tomorrow Is Mrs. Greenthumbs Day!

The Mrs. Greenthumbs Day Garden Tour takes place tomorrow, July 17, and the weather forecasts promise a sunny day. From 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., fourteen urban gardens in Hudson will be open for visitation. The gardens are located all over Hudson--south side, north side, upstreet, downstreet. The pictures below are a preview of what you will see.


Click on the map below to enlarge it and then print it. Send an email to Gossips to request a pdf of the map. Pick up a map tomorrow at Nolita (454 Warren Street), Red Dot (321 Warren Street), or The Secret Gardener (250 Warren Street). Or wander into any of the gardens tomorrow (the entrances will be marked with purple and green balloons) and pick up a map that will lead you to the rest of the gardens. The map is all you will need to chart your course from garden to garden. 

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.

  1. Dan and I were not able to see all the gardens, but saw several, and they were indeed magnificent. A delightful bonus was the chance to get to meet so many charming hosts, some of whom we already knew. Thanks so much to all for putting this event together.
