About Gardeners’ Gathering

Celebrate the start of the gardening season! The 47th Annual Gardeners’ Gathering brings Boston-area gardeners together for a free day full of informative workshops, engaging exhibitors, networking, and inspiration. Held at Northeastern University, the Gathering features more than two dozen workshops on everything from Healthy Soil to Urban Foraging. Urban homesteaders can learn about keeping bees or chickens, kombucha and other ferments, and making herbal medicines. Gardeners can hone their skills with workshops on garden planning, managing pests and diseases, home orcharding, and more.

The full program and workshop list will be linked here once available. Please consider supporting this free event through the optional program fee when you register.

Getting there:

MBTA: Ruggles and Northeastern stops.

Parking is available for $10 at the Renaissance Garage, 835 Columbus Ave (that is the only entrance to drive into, do not follow Google Maps to a back or side entrance; it’s wrong). You can exit the side of the garage, go up and through Ruggles Station, and leave through the Forsyth Street exit. From there, Shillman Hall is ahead to the left and the Egan Center is ahead to the right. Campus Map:
