Equinox Garden Tour - September 22nd at 6 pm

Tuesday, 20 July 2021 11:46

How quickly the summer has passed! The fall equinox, the day when autumn begins, is quickly approaching. The word "equinox" is derived from the Latin aequinoctium, from aequus (equal) and nox (noctis) (night). Twice each year, on the first day of spring and first day of autumn, the sun passes directly above the equator as the earth makes its yearly trek around the sun, making the daylight and nighttime hours approximately equal; it is the moment of celestial balance between light and dark. Join us to observe and celebrate this astronomical event with an evening tour of the garden and a visit to our beautiful labyrinth.
Register here, or by calling 617-333-0924 x22. This event is weather-dependent; the rain date is September 23rd at 6:00 pm.
