G4G Boston + ReVision Urban Farm
- G4G + ReVision Urban Farm
August 17, 2021
1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
WHO: Victory Programs’ ReVision Urban Farm is an innovative community-based urban agriculture project that grows produce in their own fields and provides access to affordable, nutritious and culturally appropriate food to residents of their ReVision Family Home and extended community. In association with ReVision Family Home, they also provide job training for youth and Boston’s homeless. Victory Programs’ is also the same organization that runs The Boston Living Center.
WHAT: During the warmer months, Victory Programs’ ReVision Urban Farm has switched gears from greenhouse work to field prep and planting. On your next visit, G4G will be in the fields sipping the dirt and getting fresh air. This trip will require lots of work while kneeling down and bending over. Be ready for your farm aerobics!
PLEASE NOTE: This is a VERY small event open to only 8 volunteers and it will sell out quickly. If this listing shows as “sold out” you can still sign up for the waiting list, as long as you don’t mind being approved somewhat last minute due to cancellations. If you are fortunate enough to be one of the 8 accepted, PLEASE email us at email@example.com if you cannot make it, so we can offer your slot to someone on the waiting list. You will receive a reminder/confirmation email the day before the event with the group leaders’ phone number that you may text with questions or cancellations or to make arrangements for a ride from Ashmont to the event. You may also receive a text from the leader before the event confirming your availability. Also note, a Victory Programs and G4G liability waiver will need to be signed upon arrival.
