Class of ’72 Garden Tour in Newton, Mass.
Sunday, October 1, 2023 | 10 am–noon
Organizers: Richard Primack, Deborah Chud, and Sharon Weinstein

Come join your ’72 classmates on Sunday, October 1, for a tour of two exquisite gardens in Newton: the perennial garden of classmate Deborah Chud  and the vegetable and fruit garden of Margaret Primack, wife of classmate Richard Primack. Deborah, a retired physician, has devoted seven years to researching New Perennial gardens such as New York's High Line and Chicago's Lurie Garden and has created the most comprehensive existing database of New Perennial plant combinations. In fall 2020 she presented her work as part of an international event, "Piet Oudolf: How Does He Do It?," under the aegis of gardenmasterclass.org. She has also presented to audiences at the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, Arnold Arboretum,  U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C., Toronto Botanical Garden, and Delaware Botanic Gardens. Take a peek at her Newton eden earlier this season here. Margaret's bountiful fruit and vegetable garden, featuring raised beds to repel marauders and a hand-dug well, is also noteworthy for its novel production of mushrooms. Following the tours, Richard and Margaret will host an informal reception on their deck. Significant others are welcome! RSVP to Richard (primack@bu.edu or 857-636-8378) by Friday, September 22.


Our 50th Reunion in June 2022 was fabulous. Savor the memories on our Scrapbook page! The Scrapbook will continue to welcome your photos and videos, so send them along to Debby or Kitty anytime. And see the Archives page for links to all our fascinating Zoom panels of 50th Reunion year.


This website isn't just for Reunions! New content is welcome between Reunions, too. We would like this site to be a lively, current, and interesting place for classmates to visit. So if you have published a new book, had a recent art exhibit, read an article about a '72 classmate, or got together somewhere with classmates and captured the occasion with a selfie—really, anything the class might enjoy seeing—please, send it along!
