Special Program: When Cemeteries Were Parks
October 23 @ 1:00 pm
With one of the largest green spaces in the entire city, one might consider the Easton Cemetery a historic arboretum. When the cemetery opened in 1849 it functioned not only as a burial ground, but also as a source of recreation. Families made a day of it — picnicking and taking care of plants at the gravesites of loved ones.
Join Sue Tantsits, horticulturist and owner of Edge of the Woods Native Plant Nursery, in a walk through the cemetery grounds.Learn about plants and trees of the past and what should be in place for the future.
Help to maintain the cemetery’s landscape for future generations, and consider adopting a plot. Master Gardeners will be available to answer questions and sign you up.
