Members with children, or who are downtown anyway, may be interested.  Further details at http://www.thetrustees.org/about-us/press-room/press-releases/mytoi-popup.html

The Mytoi pop-up will be on view August 6-18 at the Boston Children’s Wharf Park, located along the Harborwalk adjacent to Boston Children’s Museum where The Trustees’ Crane Beach pop-up was on view in early July. Keep an eye out for the pop-up at additional locations this August and September!


Mytoi
The 450 square foot interactive Mytoi garden pop-up is designed to encourage visitors to stroll through and experience the elements of a Japanese-inspired landscape, complete with an urban reflecting pool featuring interactive ‘koi’, bamboo groves, a serene spot to take a break – all against the backdrop of the iconic Mytoi bridge. Come visit this installation to share your own reflections and learn more about this dynamic property and the important role Trustees’ gardens play in promoting a deeper appreciation for horticulture, culture and conservation.

The Mytoi pop-up installation was designed by local landscape architect Rob Barella, an architect at Kyle Zick Landscape Architecture, Inc. Barella is passionate about the integration of art into the landscape and believes community involvement in development can help foster public engagement and better urban design.

Free programs will complement the pop-up twice a week at each site. Programs presented in partnership with Boston Children’s Museum staff will include: Kirigami paper cutting workshops on August 10th at 10am and August 12th at 2pm; storytelling in the traditional Japanese Kamishibai style of the “Bamboo Princess," followed by crafting wishing cards or Tanzaku on August 11 at 1:15pm; Carp Kite or Koinobori -making lessons on August 15 at 10am; and a workshop on crafting hanging moss gardens,Kokedama, on August 17 at 12pm. All programs are free, drop-in friendly, and weather-dependent.
