    Newton’s Horticultural Revolution: Sowing the Seeds of Change

    From settlement to the dawn of a new Republic, Newton’s landscape was dramatically transformed from an economy dependent on small family agriculture to one of Boston’s most prominent horticultural communities. As field crops gave way to the latest hybrid fruit and flower introductions, Newton’s citizens were transformed from farmers to gardeners. Come explore this transformation with landscape historian Lucinda Brockway as she describes how Newton’s horticultural revolution was born. This Historic Newton program will be at the Newton Free Library, Homer Street, Newton. Free.
