Founded in 1829, the Massachusetts Horticultural Society is an educational nonprofit, dedicated to encouraging and improving the science and practice of horticulture and developing the public’s enjoyment, appreciation and understanding of plants and the environment. We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit supported by members, donors, foundations, and our events business.
Massachusetts Horticultural Society is located on the Wellesley/Dover line in the Elm Bank Reservation. Mass Hort leases 36 acres, which include gardens, fields, and formal lawns, six buildings, and three green houses. We have a 99-year lease from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and work closely with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR). We are a garden tourism destination and a busy event venue for weddings and corporate outings.
