What seemed like a lifetime away just four short years ago is now right around the corner. Several hundred like minded community organizers, gardeners and horticulturalists will decend upon Holliston on October 7th for the America In Bloom National Symposium. Headquarters for the first weekend in October will be at the Sheraton Tara in Framingham.

That tour will be centered around downtown and include town hall, the secret garden at the library, Goodwill Park, Water Street Mill, Casey at the Bat and Blair Square. Touring visitors will be hosted to lunch under a tent at Goodwill Park and a bus ride past the 8 Arch Bridge and a tour of Pinecrest Golf Course.
