Welcome to GardenMoms - one of Boston's best parenting resources!

In 2002, an owner of the Garden of Eden restaurant in Boston’s South End noticed several regular customers who were either very pregnant or had brand-new babies. Although we (the soon-to-be GardenMoms) didn’t know each other, the Garden proprietors threw a brunch for us — and we’ve been hanging out together ever since.

We were sad to see the Garden of Eden close in 2008, but feel fortunate that the mom-to-mom connections we first made at that brunch are still going strong - and growing by the day. Our group has grown from seven moms to well over 2000, and now includes members from almost every Boston neighborhood, as well many parents who live outside the city. New GardenMoms (and, of course, new GardenBabies and a few GardenDads) are constantly joining our ranks.

Since its inception in 2002, GardenMoms has become an important resource and support network for countless parents, both new and experienced. We are fortunate to have a terrific, dedicated group of members who share their advice, humor, warmth, and support. Welcome to our group!
