Meet the gardeners and filmmaker who are working together on a documentary about Boston’s community gardens. Filmmaker Mark Gardner will show clips from the work in progress, and a few of the film’s stars will share their stories and answer your questions. You can help us make the movie by dreaming up a title and maybe even recording your own community garden story! Enjoy locally sourced appetizers, beer, and wine. Advance ticket purchase is recommended. Tickets include food and one drink, and all proceeds support Trustees Boston Community Gardens. Food, drinks and mingling start at 6 pm; the program begins at 6:30 pm.
We’re pleased to partner with More Than Words Warehouse Bookstore in the South End for this event. More Than Words is a job training and youth development program that empowers nearly 350 youth each year to take charge of their lives by taking charge of their $4M bookselling business.
The bookstore, which doubles as a beautiful event space, will be open until 8pm so come early if you’d like to browse! Donations of books, CDs, DVDs, and video games are most welcome (please no encyclopedias, VHS tapes, audio cassettes, or magazines/periodicals). The bookstore is a brick building next to the Troy residential complex, accessible by the Silver, Red, and Orange lines as well as other MBTA buses.
