Last night, Arrowstreet sponsored CitySprouts annual Dig It! event on March 13 at the Liberty Hotel from 6-8:30pm. The event celebrated garden-based learning and raised funds for the organization’s program in Boston and Cambridge public schools. Special guests included Felix Arroyo, Chief of Health and Human Services for the City of Boston, and CitySprouts Community and Environmental Impact Award recipient, Travis McCready, Vice President of Program of The Boston Foundation.
CitySprouts mission is to develop, implement and maintain beautiful, resource-rich school gardens in collaboration with public school communities. Integrated into the curriculum, CitySprouts gardens inspire teachers, students, and families with a deep, hands-on connection to the food cycle, sustainable agriculture, and the natural environment.
