South End Garden Tour
June 15, 2013
The 20th annual South End Garden Tour will feature "Artists in the Gardens", an exciting collaboration with artists from United South End Artists, Inc., who will be at their easels creating en plein air paintings in selected gardens and other locations.
Immediately after the tour, the paintings will be available for sale at a reception at City Year headquarters 287 Columbus Avenue in the South End. The reception is open to the public with a $10.00 admission and is free for Garden Tour patrons who present their ticket at the door.
The rain-or-shine, self-guided Garden Tour begins at the South End Branch Library 685 Tremont Street in the South End. Tour visitors enter a diverse array of urban gardens, from the pocket gardens of historic rowhouses to a lush and hidden urban oasis normally accessible only to residents of adjoining buildings.
