With your generous support, in 2021 we were able to further our mission in a way that not only engaged our Membership, but was beneficial to our entire neighborhood. Some highlights included:
2021 - Another Great Season!
The addition of our Kids' exploration plot, where kids can see, touch, and smell herbs as they grow.
The biannual Garden Tour of Historic Charlestown, featuring beautiful gardens throughout the neighborhood.
Our first ever Weatherfest! in June 2021 to celebrate the installation of our new weather station on top of the big shed.
Halloween in the Gardens, which had our biggest turnout ever!
On October 24th from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., we celebrated Halloween in the Gardens with all of our neighborhood witches and gouls. It was a brisk, but bright day made even brighter by the many smiles that could be seen shining in every corner of our beautiful green space. Thank you to all of our volunteers as well as all of those who came out to support the neighborhood and Gardens for Charlestown! Enjoy the below photos from the Charlestown Patriot-Bridge.

July 24, 2021
On Saturday, July 24, the Gardens held its first ever Weatherfest! We celebrated the addition of our new weather station with help from Charlestown's own weatherman, Eric Fisher from WBZ-TV. Our event was spotlighted in the Patriot Bridge and was a fun way for families to gather and learn some new weather fun facts while enjoying the beauty of the Gardens!

June 19, 2021
The 2021 Garden Tour of Historic Charlestown was a triumph! Nearly 300 people attended the self-guided tour, catching a rare glimpse of some of the most charming outdoor spaces in the neighborhood. Attendees remarked:
"This was my first time on the tour and it was a really wonderful way to see a side of Charlestown I had not seen before. I enjoyed it immensely."
"Thank you! The tour was lovely on a nice day to be enjoying the fresh air, gracious hosts and also supporting the work of your organization."
"This is such a great way to get to know Charlestown and know your neighbors and give them kudos for keeping Charlestown beautiful."
The Gardens also raised funds by raffling off several prizes graciously donated by our friends and neighbors. Thank you to everyone for supporting this even and we're looking forward to the next Garden Tour in 2023!
