Beals Preserve Preservation Garden Tour on June 24

Published on June 24, 2023 by Eileen Samberg

On June 24, Freddie Gillespie, Chair of Southborough’s Open Space Preservation Commission (OSPC), gave a tour and talk about the Beals Preserve Pollination Preservation Garden. The tour and talk covered the challenges and benefits of pollination preservation activities in old meadows. The morning’s drizzle did not keep a nice crowd from coming to hear Freddie and to buy plants.

Local vendors sold plants exclusively from Dr. Gegear’s list for at-risk pollinators.

The garden is a partnership project of the OSPC and the Southborough Open Land
Foundation and was established in 2022.
