Wrapping up a spring of good eats...with dirt

Community Food Workshop Series

EAST BOSTON: After a long winter, it’s finally time to get down and grow some food! The Community Food Workshop Series will wrap up with a hands-on “how-to” on Container Planting on Thursday, May 5, at the Harborside Community Center. With free containers, soil, and seeds distributed to all workshop participants, this is an evening not to be missed!

All those interested in food, community or gardening are welcome. “Anyone can grow food in their own home without a lot of money, space, or time,” said Cait Van Damm, co-coordinator of the series. “Gardening is one of the best ways to “There’s a lot of magic that happens when we watch seeds grow!”

Held on the first Thursday night of each month at Harborside Adult Education Center, the Community Food Workshop Series are an opportunity for discussion about food system issues relating directly to East Boston and will provide opportunities for participants to get involved in urban gardening and public health initiatives. Topics have included local food systems, food justice, and food memory.

Led by local gardeners, this Thursday’s workshop is open to all and promises to be an engaging mix of hands-on education and fun! “Food is such an important part of community, and East Boston is no exception,” said Cait Van Damm, co-coordinator of the Community Food Workshop Series. “We’re so excited to wrap up a winter of talking about good food and health with growing potential! This will also be a great way for all those interested in other projects around East Boston to learn more about how to get involved in community projects.”

The series is sponsored by Healthy on the Block/Saludable en tu T tienda, an East Boston Neighborhood Health Center and Boston Public Health Commission initiative to increase access to fresh produce and whole grains in corner stores.
