Envisioning the future of Mass Hort

Almost everything you see today on the grounds of Mass Hort is the realization of the Master Plan we laid out in 1998: The restoration of the Hunnewell and Putnam Buildings and the Education Center, the preservation of the Olmstead Italianate Garden and two historic cottages, and 16 acres of gardens exhibiting an array of cultivated flowers, herbs, and vegetables. After 20 years, Mass Hort is now settled into its home at Elm Bank on the Wellesley-Dover line, and we are poised to develop a truly spectacular public garden and open-space destination in the heart of the Western Suburbs—only 13 miles from Boston Common. Now is the time to lay out a new Master Plan that will take us to our 200th anniversary in 2029.

Help us plan for the next generation

The Board and Executive staff are united in our aspiration to position Mass Hort as a world class garden tourism destination that demonstrates the science and practice of horticulture for the 21st century. We need you to help shape our vision to establish a signature destination garden that displays the highest level of horticultural excellence, and to continue to offer powerful public education programs about contemporary issues of health, sustainability, and stewardship of our natural world. Our goal is to engage the broadest possible audience to share these experiences, so we invite you to Get Involved.
