Field Trip!

March 4, 2012

This past tuesday we headed into town for a walk through the Back Fens area in Boston. Right in the middle of that beautiful area are the Fenway Victory Gardens. And yes that’s Victory Garden as in World War II ration replacement civic duty kind of garden. The oldest still surviving victory garden in north america. 70 years young.

We did some serious wandering and found a bamboo grove! This place is basically a massive community garden that has grown and changed over the years, several of the long standing tenants have expanded their plots and really created amazing outdoor spaces. They’re looking for new applicants! Sadly I think we’re going to be hanging out in a spaceship on March 18th at noon.

The area is surrounded by wetlands, and this guys kept following us around like maybe we’d scare up some mice. It’s really cool to see such a well established community garden with its own active pest control system.
