What You'll Get


In a flawed attempt at garden maintenance, amateurs often construct a scarebee to deter pesky pollinators from cross-contaminating precious thoroughbred plants. Experience a naturally cultivated garden with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-year family-and-friends membership to New England Wild Flower Society, with free admission to the Garden in the Woods botanic garden in Framingham (up to a $70 value).

The country’s oldest plant conservation organization, New England Wild Flower Society’s fortress of floral cultivation propagates and protects more than 1,000 native plant species. The collection of native greenery displayed at the Garden in the Woods botanic garden preserves biodiversity and educates earth-friendly patrons about which varietal of Funyuns is best used as fertilizer. Visitors may wander through plant-based exhibits such as Native Buzz, which focuses on pollination, as children watch the ducks, turtles, and fire-breathing dragonflies at the lily pond. Before visiting the Idea Garden, which schools amateur horticulturalists in native plants, guests can learn to recognize and incarcerate green intruders in the Invasive Plant Jail, then tearfully argue with them through visiting-room glass.

A family-and-friends membership grants free admission to Garden in the Woods for two adults from the same household, their children under 18, one guest with every visit, and the satisfaction of supporting New England Wild Flower Society's conservation efforts. Members receive subscriptions to society publications, 20 percent discounts on courses and symposia, and reciprocal admission to more than 200 botanical gardens, which stay in contact via lightning-bug-filled signal lamps. They also receive 10 percent off plant purchases at Garden in the Woods and its native plant nursery, Nasami Farm, in Whately.

Though New England Wild Flower Society sometimes features a discounted membership price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
