A great gnome uprising is coming! In 1986, the Worcester County Horticultural Society purchased Tower Hill Farm in Boylston and began building New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill. It is said that gnomes inhabited the property, long before the Garden was ever built, but strangely, over the past two years gnome activity has been on the rise. But why? Perhaps the gnomes are tired of hiding. Or maybe they are curious about the visitors, or the new gardens we’re building. Either way, NEBG is prepared for them to pop out again this year. Are you?
The gnomes of New England Botanic Garden have welcomed a few new residents to their community, and their silly antics are bigger and craftier than ever. Come and see the Garden’s newest inhabitants and witness their takeover this Gnomevember!
New England Botanic Garden has formal gardens as well as easy hikes through woodland trails that include scenic views of the Wachusett Reservoir and Mount Wachusett. The Visitor Center includes Farmer and the Fork cafe, beautiful subtropical conservatories, and the Garden Shop where visitors can find garden gnomes for sale.
The Gnomevember scavenger hunt is included in admission to NEBG in November. Get your tickets here: https://nebg.org/planyourvisit/
