Remember the Boston Tree Party? They’re the group of urban gardeners in Boston who are planting apple trees on publicly available land. They’ve already planted enough trees to produce more than 10,000 apples a year for the community, once the trees start fruiting.
As if that weren’t cool enough, there’s a new documentary film about the group, and they’re going to be screening it this coming Tuesday at Boston University! Check out a trailer and deets on the screening below.
