    Garden #1 - 173 Evergreen Drive, Marstons Mills, MA 02648
    This garden overlooks the serene Shubael Pond and features the most interesting and unusual organic vegetable and fruit garden. The hostess saves heirloom seeds and has quite a variety of tomatoes and other vegetables. The garden feeds the family and has done so for many years. The hostess is so enthusiastic and glad to share her knowledge.
    Directions: From Falmouth Road (Rt. 28) and Old Stage Road in Centerville (note the Mobil gas station), turn north on to Old Stage Rd., go 2.0 mi. Continue straight onto Race Lane, go 0.7 mi. Turn left onto Nelson Lane, go 0.2 mi. Driveway is directly ahead at end of Nelson Lane. Destination parking is on the street.

    Garden #2 - 2260 Main Street, Barnstable, MA (Route 6A)
    The garden at the office of Todd Harris DMD and Neil Ringler DDS was created by Master Gardener Sheila Sylvia. We are now fortunate to have Jan Towne assist us in maintaining the garden and adding her personal touch. This sunny hillside garden is home to birds and butterflies. The colors of plant materials change from blue and purple in spring to hot orange and red later in summer. There is a surprise around each corner of the space. Patients coming and going appreciate the soothing, meditative quality of this happy environment. The intent of the garden was for the staff and patients to enjoy. It is wonderful to stop and admire the latest blooms. We appreciate that this helps our patients with setting a tone for the rest of their visit.
    Directions: From Exit 6 on mid-Cape highway, go north on 132 to Route 6A. Turn right on 6A (Main Street) toward Barnstable Village and 2260 Main will be on your left. Look for the garden and a sign for Harris and Ringler Dental. If you reach the railroad overpass, you’ve gone too far. Coming from Barnstable Village it will be on the right past the railroad overpass and BWB Elementary School.
