Making Assabet River Rail Trail (www.arrtinc.org) Interesting

"Trail of Flowers" volunteers in Massachusetts have committed to planting thousands of flowering bulbs, annuals and perennials along the Assabet River Rail Trail as part of a project to make the trail interesting.

First year (2018): 2000 daffodils planted!

Donations from Maynard Community Gardeners (http://www.maynardgardeners.org/mcg/ )and the Assabet River Rail Trail organization (www.ARRTinc.org) combined with the efforts of volunteers made the fall 2018 planting a  success.


May 4th was a flower-viewing trail walk from downtown Maynard to the historic Marble Farm site, where 1000+ daffodils were planted. The walk passed other planting sites. Fall 2019 saw planting of 2000+ bulbs in Maynard and Acton.
