Slow Food comes to Blue Hill Boys and Girls Club April 6

Boys and Girls Planting for Health is happening at the Blue Hill Boys and Girls Club of Boston on Wednesday, April 6, 2011 starting at 9 a.m. The event is run by Nature's Sustainers, a community relations class from Boston University, who will help the Blue Hill Club build a working garden to teach its members about responsibility, healthy living, sustainability and the slow food movement.

The Nature's Sustainers group will build raised bed gardens similar to the one above, and provide the Club with necessary gardening tools. In addition, individuals from local organizations and businesses will come in to talk to the staff and members of Blue Hill Club about the importance of the slow food movement and healthy living.  Once the gardens are built and planted a group of 10-15 Boston-based middle schoolers - the Gardening Club - will be responsible for tending to the vegetable gardens during the school year.
