"Boys and Girls Planting for Health," Apr. 6

Nature's Sustainers, a community relations class from Boston University, will host "Boys and Girls Planting for Health" at the Boys and Girls Club of Boston's Blue Hill Club on Wednesday, April 6, 2011 starting at 9 a.m. With the aid of the BU group, Blue Hill Club will build a working garden to teach its members about responsibility, healthy living, sustainability and the slow food movement.

Nature's Sustainers will build Blue Hill Club raised bed gardens and provide the Club with necessary gardening tools. The group of 10 students, four graduate and six undergraduate, will do this by finding sponsorships and partnerships as well as soliciting monetary and in-kind donations. In addition, Nature's Sustainers will bring in individuals from local organizations and businesses to talk to the staff and members of Blue Hill Club about the importance of the slow food movement and healthy living. For more information, contact Laura Castro at l.c.castr@gmail.com or (413) 210-8627.
