Secret Gardens of Cambridge Tour to benefit Cambridge Public Library

Please join the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library for its biennial “Secret Gardens of Cambridge” tour.  Held every other year, the event will feature more than two dozen Cambridge gardens that will be open to the public on Sunday, June 10th, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.  Anyone with a ticket can stroll through an eye-catching array of back yards, side yards, front yards and even an open field of lupines, all to benefit the Cambridge Public Library.  In fact, the “Secret Gardens” tour is the single biggest fund-raiser for the library, usually raising more than $10,000 that will be used to buy books, fund programs, and bring guest authors to the library for readings.
The self-guided tour is spread out over four neighborhoods, including Central Square and Riverside.  This year the addition of 18 new gardens provides an opportunity to explore the city, discover new spaces and give exposure to new ideas, designs, and gardening tips.
Tickets for the 2012 “Secret Gardens of Cambridge” will be sold beginning May 15th  at all branches of the library as well as at Bonny’s Garden Center, Dickson Brothers Hardware, Nomad, Pemberton Farms, Porter Square Books, and Rodney’s Bookstore.  Tickets for the general public are $25, while members of the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library can purchase discounted tickets for $20 at the main library only.  For more information, contact: cambridgelibraryfriends@gmail.com.
