Nightingale Garden Harvest Festival
Nightingale Community Garden, located at 512 Park Street in Dorchester continues to be the neighborhood's center of garden activity. On Saturday, September 22 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Nightingale Community Garden will celebrate its second annual Fall Harvest Festival. This is an opportunity for all Dorchester gardeners to share the bounty of their harvest. You are invited to bring food and your appetite and enjoy the potluck of fresh dishes inspired by a season of growing.
At noon, there will be a class featuring global food with lessons on how to prepare recipes from around the world.
The Nightingale Garden Harvest Festival is part of BNAN’s Boston Is Growing Gardens (BIGG) project which aims to double the community garden food growing capacity in Dorchester and increase opportunities for access to healthy food and physical activity for Dorchester residents. Working with our partners, the City of Boston, gardeners, neighbors and local health organizations ,BNAN is undertaking to create a two-fold increase in the number of plots (from 249 to 251) in the 17 Dorchester Community Gardens owned by BNAN.
