Tina, Preston | July 5, 2021

We are very excited to announce that the garden at the Preston location will be open this summer! (Dependent on opening regulations.)

We have planted some delicious vegetables and herbs. Some of these include thyme, oregano, bell peppers, yellow beans, zucchini, and, of course, our One Seed One Community seed: the Cascadia Pea.

When ready, our staff will harvest these and put in individual bags for you to take and enjoy at home!

In case you didn’t know, Idea Exchange Preston helped get Cambridge designated as a Bee City! Check out our lovely pollinator garden when you are out there. We also have other beautiful flowers making it a serene peaceful place!

You will be able to access the garden from going into the building and out the back door. Our new gate by the parking lot will be locked, but for your convenience, you may leave through it. We will allow two people at a time up to 45 minutes to enjoy this wonderful space.

Since we were unable to plant and open our garden last year, it is extra special to be able to welcome you this summer! We can’t wait for you to come and enjoy it!
