This summer, The Trustees has put together a unique pop up program to help connect Boston residents to a few of our 116 properties. The most recent installation was a replica of Mytoi, our Japanese-inspired garden property on Martha's Vineyard.

For the last few weeks the Mytoi pop up has been installed at the East Boston Branch of the Boston Public Library but it's moving to the Rose Kennedy Greenway Carousel block! We are looking for a couple of volunteers with carpentry, painting, and/or construction experience to help us dismantle the pop up in East Boston, repair it in Mattapan, and assemble the pop up at the Greenway. There are 6 dates avaialble, you can sign up for one or more of these days:
