The famed Concord spokesman for individualism and self-reliance, Ralph Waldo Emerson, once wrote,”When I go into a good garden, I think, if it were mine, I should never go out of it.” This year the Concord Museum is celebrating 22 years of going into good gardens on the annual Concord Garden Tour.
The Mueseum’s Garden Tour has become a New England tradition for garden lovers from near and far. Each of the nine private gardens reflects the individual interests and passions of the owners and their families and will inspire both new gardeners designing their first perennial bed and accomplished landscapers with acres of garden rooms.
The tour of Concord-area gardens is self-guided and self paced from 9:00 am-4:00 pm. Tickets are available in advance or at the door.
