WREN is proud to announce its 3rd Annual Woburn Garden Awards. The Garden Awards is a celebration of Woburn' gardens and its gardeners. Joining WREN will be: Social Capital Inc. and the Woburn Guild of Artists. WREN's Woburn Garden Awards is a social event that brings together some of Woburn's most dedicated and inspirational artists, some of the finest gardeners. The Woburn Garden Awards showcases the most imaginative, colorful and beautiful spaces found around the city, spaces not always visible to the public eye from the street. These are in the private backyards of proud neighbors who spend a lot of time digging, weeding, watering, and staking. As judges and participants, we will be invited into some of the city's most intimate spaces to witness creations as individual as the creators themselves... Masterpieces painted with plants instead of paints!
