Community Garden History
Tower Hill has begun a research project on the history of community gardens and other community-based gardening projects in Worcester, with the aim of connecting local communities to the history of the landscape. The first program offered (in fall 2019) was on the topic of WWII Victory Gardens. See Worcester Victory Gardens for more information.
Focusing on estate and other well-designed or well-known gardens of central Massachusetts, this project collected information on a wide range of gardens and their people. Pages are in progress documenting these gardens' history and the locations of further sources.
