Mytoi Gardens is a The Trustees of Reservations (TTOR) property on Chappaquiddick. Among its gardens and rare trees, it is known for its pond, home to many colorful goldfish. On July 11, visitors were asked to help release new, young, goldfish into the pond. Many people responded to the invitation from the event's coordinator, Sarah Trudel.

If you are interested in helping out TTOR on the Mytoi property, several volunteer days are scheduled this summer. The next is this Wednesday, July 25. Stop by for as long as you would like between 9 am to 12 noon, and bring gardening tools if you have them. You can prune, weed, and help with other garden maintenance to keep the property as beautiful as it can be. For more information, call 508-627-3599.
