Presented by Lexington Community Education
March 7, 2011
The Boston Common is a tribute to our Puritan forebears—but did you know that the Boston Public Garden was once the site of the most hazardous workplace in Boston? Or that the Back Bay Fens is built on earth from excavating the Red Line? Join local author Meg Muckenhoupt for a look at the quirky, evolving story of Greater Boston's parks, gardens and green spaces, from Puritan sheepfolds to “urban wilds” to healing gardens for cancer survivors. This lecture offers a fascinating journey through green Boston, past to present—and all nature lovers, gardening enthusiasts, and history buffs should be sure to come along for the ride. Meg Muckenhoupt is a local author, gardener and active member of Lexington's green community.
