ABOUT THIS EVENT
SBN is organizing two tours of urban farms in and around Boston as part of our Eat Local Month campaign. This tour is designed to be an experience of urban farming and its links to our growing business of food entrepreneurism in the Boston area. The tour will specifically emphasize urban farms very important position for providing food insecure residents in the community with healthy food access options.
Urban farms in the Boston area include land that is being reclaimed, restored and redesigned, to food forests, and more. This tour will provide a snapshot of the vibrant urban farming community and its intersection of land, culture and food economy in Boston.
What image comes to mind when you think of a farm? Is it fruitful plots of land in the middle of the city?
