Mass Hort Update


Thanks to everyone who has emailed me privately about the situation at Mass Hort. Nobody really wants to go on the record, but the bottom line is that the organization has a lot of dedicated volunteers (and formerly dedicated, but now heartbroken and unemployed ex-employees) who hope the organization can pull itself together, pay its debts, and continue its good work.

A couple of Mass Hort supporters wrote to say that they wondered why the big sale at their gift shop, which has all the trappings of a close-out sale (everything must go, 50% off storewide), when a gift shop, after all, should be a money-maker. Maybe somebody who was there this weekend can give us a report, and we’ll keep you posted if we hear anything else.
