Dewey Demonstration Gardens

So today walking back from lunch, I was crossing the Greenway and happened upon the Dewey Demonstration Gardens. The project is composting, growing edible plants, etc, and is working with a variety of local organizations, including Youth Build Boston. They have great signage, with QR codes if you want more info. Their storage shed was also pretty great - a series of short containers that also have green roofs and provide an armature for vertical growing. This project is a good precedent for us in many ways - its commitment to education [both of students and of the public], urban growing, and connections to local markets - anyone want to meet me here for a field trip and lunch at the Momogoose or BBQ foodtruck? 

More info here, and video here.
