In October, volunteers from the Dorchester area of Boston gathered to plant fruit trees to complete the set-up for the new HERO Nurturing Center Inc. Hope Garden. The former vacant lot will serve as a community garden, food forest and gathering space for the neighborhood. Speak for the Trees, Farmers Collaborative, Boston Food Forest, HERO Nurturing Center and HomeHarvest all supported the planting. Funding from global marketing company Epsilon, an Alliance Data company based in Wakefield, Mass., and American Forests’ corporate partner, brought plans and efforts in Boston to fruition.
