Cape Ann’s beautiful natural environment and colorful seaside gardens perpetually inspire artists, designers, landscapers and now a growing community of civic-minded gardening enthusiasts.  As part of the seven million dollar seawall reconstruction project along Stacy Boulevard, numerous garden beds were installed and Gloucester’s volunteer group of “Generous Gardeners” planted them with thousands of colorful flowers. A riot of color is now enjoyed by all who stroll along the iconic boulevard. Generous Gardeners has also enhanced the rough charm of Gloucester’s working waterfront filling over 30 public spaces with beautiful bulbs, annuals and perennials. Contact Susan Kelly at susan@generousgardeners.org or 781-346-1363 to volunteer or learn more.
