Mark your calendars for Saturday workdays hosted by the Boston Food Forest Coalition!   Learn about how to take care of a food forest, help us build our flagship site, meet like-minded folks, and enjoy getting outside!   Work Saturdays will be held once a month on the following days: May 4, June 15, July 20, August 10, September 14, and October 12.

Time: 9 AM to noon.

Where: We meet at the Gazebo to start, but come any time and find us in the food forest!

Last year, we planted scores of new fruit and nut trees, and started building polycultures around them. This year, we are going to add new plants, but we will also be improving soil, pruning, maintaining plant health, and removing some of the competing invasive plants.

Each Saturday workday will be led by a member of the Boston Nature Center food forest stewardship team.  All of the stewardship team members are experienced permaculture enthusiasts who have been active in the Boston Nature Center food forest for at least a year.  In addition to guiding the workdays, they will be able to teach you about taking care of a food forest.
