DORCHESTER, MA — BGCD opened up its doors to host a lively block party event to kick off our Safe Summer Streets program. The Safe Summer Streets program has been happening in Dorchester since the summer of 1990. The goal of the program is to keep teens in Dorchester safe and productive during the summer months when they are most vulnerable.

The block party featured a chance for teens to register for summer programs, a 3 on 3 basketball tournament, free food, t-shirts, giveaways and tons of other fun activities.

NORWELL, MA — Members from our Urban Farming Program visited Hornstra Farms in Norwell, MA. Members received a tour of the dairy farm, were able to see many animals including cows and goats, and received fresh, home-made ice cream to cap off a fun day at the farm.

The Urban Farming Program gives our members insight into the farm-to-table process through hands on experience and field trips around the Greater Boston Area. The overall goal of the program is to engage urban communities in building a healthier and more locally based food system.
