We’ll be there enjoying the garden from 5:30 onwards. The informal program will begin at 6. Goodwin Garden is behind 11&12 Goodwin Place in Brookline Village, near the Brookline Public Library. There’s easy access by public transit (including the green line D and E trains as well as buses on Washington Street, Harvard Street, and Huntington Ave), and there’s street parking on Washington Street. We have a rain location nearby, but keep your fingers crossed that we can enjoy the garden! Questions? Email neasist@gmail.com.
