Mark your calendars for Third Thursdays! Come and enjoy good company with your fellow permaculture enthusiasts at the Third Thursday Boston Food Forest Potlucks! Third Thursdays will be held all season on May 16, June 20, July 18, August 15, September 19, and October 17.

The Potlucks are from 6-8.

Bring a dish or drink of your own choice, and your own tableware (we will set up a dishwashing station). We will be at the Gazebo next to the Community Gardens.

The Workdays are from 3-6.

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.

On most Thursdays we will be joined by Ben Crouch, tree expert, permaculture teacher, and proprietor of Land of Plenty LLC, to walk us through the plans for our work. Ben is amazingly knowledgeable and so the workdays will also be a great learning experience for all.

Come learn about how to take care of a food forest, help us build our flagship site, meet like-minded folks, and enjoy!
