Our Mission

The Boston Food Forest Coalition (BFFC) is building nourishing relationships between neighbors, land, and food in the city. These three vital aspects of urban life are connected in a network of food forests stewarded by neighbors and community partners throughout the city. By restoring nature to the city we are healing ourselves, our neighborhoods, and Earth. Read more
