Pingree Park Garden, how it started.
After a great deal of consideration, HWGC took an interesting turn in the road for our large public event, something we try to do every four years. Rather than organize a lovely Garden Tour or Flower Show (as in past years), we chose
to create something that will be long lasting and give back to our community.
The choice was a mini Public Garden or a ‘Garden Space’; something small and manageable (about ¼ of an acre) that offered a beautiful place to sit, think and enjoy.
A garden for community workshops focused on gardening needs, and a place to help set
an example in terms of eco-system, native plants and the environment. We hoped for a high foot traffic location so it could be enjoyed by all ages and shared with many folks in our area.
Following several weeks of research and conversations with both towns, we were pleased to have finally settled on Pingree Park; a park that is used daily and has a long history not only in the towns of Hamilton and Wenham, but in our surrounding towns and communities as well.
That was 2017.
Join us on workdays
to plant and maintain this demonstration garden for
all to enjoy.
