Orion Kriegman, from the Boston Food Forest Coalition, will share the story of the creation of the Egleston Community Orchard and how neighbors of all backgrounds came together to transform a vacant lot. He’ll then lead a dynamic discussion about how to organize diverse neighborhoods for the purpose of shared food growing.
Orion Kriegman is the Executive Director of the Boston Food Forest Coalition, a nonprofit organization that promotes food justice and sustainable urban agriculture through neighborhood “forest gardens” with sites in Dorchester, JP, East Boston, West End, and Mattapan.
The cost is on a sliding scale of $10-40. Scholarships available. Preregistration required.
