Spring into Summer with the Secret Gardens of Cambridge on June 1

Remember winter? 

Oh, that’s right, it went on for about eight months this year.

But yes, winter is officially over, and in its place we have the every-other-year celebration of spring, the Secret Gardens of Cambridge tour. 

Remember winter all you want, but come on: is there really anything better than spending one Sunday in June wandering through gardens and fields and back yards and private places, talking to people just like you who like nothing better than getting their hands dirty bringing something to life?

Forget winter. The Secret Gardens of Cambridge are amazing.

So here’s the deal: on Sunday, June 1st, between 10 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon, we’re inviting you to enjoy more than two dozen gardens in Cambridge that you’d never be able to see any other time of the year. A taste of the summer to come, and a reminder of why we love living here.

Rain or shine, the gardens are beautiful and full of color. But just as important, the Secret Gardens of Cambridge is the single largest one-year fundraiser for the Cambridge Public Library. Buy a ticket for $25.00, and you’ll help the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library purchase new acquisitions, fund family programs, bring guest speakers, and underwrite all the activities that help make the Cambridge Public Library the center of our community that it is.

Beautiful gardens, hidden Cambridge spaces, helping the library. Is there any better way to start the summer?

Tickets are on sale now at all Cambridge library locations and at the following local retailers: 
Bonny's Garden Center
Brattle Florist
Dickson Bros. Hardware
Mahoney's in Brighton
Pemberton Farms
Porter Square Books
Rodney's Books
