NESBA visits Tower Hill Botanic Gardens

The Worcester County Horticultural Society is the third oldest active horticultural society in the United States.  In 1986, the Society set its focus on creating a botanic garden at Tower Hill Farm in Boylston, MA.  Today, Tower Hill Botanic Garden features a year-round display of the finest plants for cultivation in New England. Carefully planned gardens and collections of ornamental, edible and native plants, plus trails that enhance the natural features of this beautiful 171-acre property.

"I was happy to see that Tower Hill has a sensory garden for those with disabilities. It includes a wall garden for touch, smell and taste, a beautiful raised pool for sound and touch, all handicapped accessible. " Nancy Savage

"This was my first visit to Tower Hill and I IOVED it !!!" Elena Balmaseda Scherer 

Frank Bissette led the group and the tour was in the main entrance gardens and vegetable gardens .

"The many examples of familiar and unusual plants, such as black tomatoes and milkweed "Bucky Balls", were visually exciting and inspiring. " Jeanne Kunze 

"I was struck by how many flowering plants at Tower Hill were ones I had never seen before. The gardens definitely had a "wow" factor. " Diane Piktialis 

"I learned the most from the vegetable and systematic gardens and appreciate the Botanical colletcion of unique plants witihn the Tower Hill." Kathleen Kummer

The Worcester Illustrators’ Guild at Indian Hill

The Worcester Illustrators’ Guild (TWIG) grew from the serendipitous meeting of a group of women who share a need for artistic expression and a love of nature.  Our particular focus in botanical art is intended to promote and encourage the appreciation of plants through careful observation. TWIG is our joint adventure to continue our enduring friendship and mutual support in the pursuit of art, nature, life and laughter.
