Parking Directions for Wednesday-UPDATE

With the weather forecast, we think it makes more sense for people to park along the driveway instead of in the pasture.

Turn into driveway (beech trees on both sides of driveway entrance) and proceed up driveway past gray stable. Please park on the right side of the driveway only. We will reserve a few spaces at the top of the driveway for anyone with mobility issues. When you leave, you can drive up the driveway and turn around in the car park in front of the house. If you must park on Estabrook Road/Barnes Hill Road, please park on our side of the road, starting at our driveway going towards Barnes Hill Road. (To the left as you face the driveway entrance.)

If it rains-we will be inside. It will not be cancelled.

Andrea Meyers address is: 116 Estabrook Road

Grant Proposals

Garden Club of Concord Seeks Grant Proposals

The Garden Club of Concord is soliciting proposals from local organizations and residents seeking funding for gardening-related community projects.

Each year, the Garden Club sponsors a range of projects in the Concord community. Past grants have funded planting projects at the Old Manse, the Concord Housing Authority and The Umbrella Community Arts Center. Grants have also supported organizations engaged in the preservation of open space and the environment in Concord. In addition, the Club supports outreach to citizens through nature and horticulture; Gaining Ground, MinuteMan ARC for Human Services, and Cooperative Elder Services have received past grants for garden-related educational and therapeutic programs.

Funding for all grants is provided by the Club’s annual Spring Plant Sale which is open to the public.

Please email Andrea Meyers at: to receive the grant application. Applications are due by October 12, 2017.

Town Garden News!

SUBJECT — Town Garden News & Volunteers needed
As you likely know, we’ve removed the West Concord garden (all plants sold at the Plant Sale) to make way for the Bruce Freeman rail trail, so are only maintaining the Town House garden this summer.
There we’ve added a lovely new rose, Polar Express, to the left bed.
Thanks to Jane Rupley for her recommendation.
It’s still tiny, but will grow to look like this —
Thanks also to Cris Van Dyke and Dorris Kehoe who, along with us divided and moved grasses, nepeta and day lilies over the last few weeks. Thanks Cris and Mary Ann Ferrell for donating some of their own Shasta daisies to revitalize that plant, and for Jane Rupley’s donation of phlox. And thanks to all the volunteers who tend the gardens through the summer!
Please consider volunteering for the following still-open weeks:
July 3 & 10
Aug 21 & 28
Sept 4 & 25
To learn more or sign up, please go to
It’s fun to work in the garden, and hear from so many who pass by how much it is enjoyed an appreciated!
Ellen Whitney & Sandy Conrad
