Saturday April 30th 2011 Rachel, Amelia and Matt went to volunteer with the Food Project at one of their farms. This one was in Dorchester so we took the redline from downtown and then a bus to get out there – to 40 West Cottage Street.
Once we got off the bus there were a few businesses then houses and more houses….and then a farm! At the Food Project farm we met youth staff members who led crews to get beds ready for the planting season. Everyone was really young, super friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable about our food system. It was a really fun day and a great hands on experience at a farm in Boston. The Food Project staff invited us back to volunteer with them in the future and we all agreed we would love to!
