Massachusetts Horticultural Society


Wellesley, Massachusetts

The Massachusetts Horticultural Society's Garden to Table Program offers the public an opportunity to come together in a beautiful and welcoming setting to learn about growing, cooking, and preserving healthy food.

Grow Your Own Food

Everyone from Michelle Obama to the American Academy of Pediatrics agrees that fruits and vegetables must play a crucial role in improving our health and, especially, the health of our children. In fact, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's new symbol for healthy eating - called "My Plate" - tells us that half our diet should be fruits and vegetables. Mass Hort is uniquely situated to help in this effort. Since 1829, Mass Hort has been a leader in learning and teaching about horticulture. With our Garden to Table program, we're offering our knowledge of plants to enhance the well-being of our community.

Support a Food Pantry

Approximately 40% of our new garden will be devoted specifically to growing food that we'll donate to the Wellesley Food Pantry, the Natick Food Pantry, and A Place To Turn. These pantries serves a large and diverse group of people. Massachusetts Horticultural Society is pleased to support the Pantry's efforts to provide healthy and nutritious vegetables to local families.
