Virtual Garden Tour

June 25, 2021 9:00 AM — 5:00 PM


Explore Concord’s gorgeous formal gardens and rambling country landscapes without leaving home!

Presented by

A riot of color parades along the front facade of this 18th century home in an idyllic, rural setting.

The Guild of Volunteers is pleased to present the 32nd Annual Garden Tour as a virtual experience featuring six spectacular gardens.

Join Garden Guide Ellen Hartshorne Whitney to tour this stunning collection of gardens.  Each property reflects nature’s beauty and bounty in its own way, whether in the vibrant pinks of peonies in full bloom, the sculptural twists and turns of carefully tended trees, or the expansive view across natural meadows alive with butterflies and bees.  Produced by Sam Krueger Cinema, each episode is rich with both breathtaking vistas as far as the eye can see, and moments spent lingering on the intimate beauty of flower petals speckled with dew or leaves dancing in the breeze.  Experience these special places with the benefit of expert guidance, encouraging the eye and the mind to notice and appreciate both the smallest details and the grandest ideals reflected in these unique properties.  And, with continuing access to the entire series after release, return anytime you want to be inspired again and again!
