We Grow Food – And Community!

Urban Forestry Center
45 Elwyn Road
Portsmouth, NH 03801
United States

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.

Sponsored by Seacoast Permaculture, CLIPPERS Farm to School, SEAREI, Robinwood Center, PS21 & North Shore Permaculture Collaborative
