Boston Scenes 7-26-18: 21st century urban farm, residence, and teaching center!

On Monday, June, 25, 2018, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Historic Boston Inc. and its three partners — Urban Farming Institute, Trust for Public Land and North Bennet Street School — celebrated the opening of a 21st century urban farm, residence, and teaching center at the Fowler Clark Epstein Farm, the oldest farm still existing in the City of Boston. The restoration project cost about $3.7 million. HBI and partners raised much of the money from about 20 foundations and other contributors. Urban Farming Institute now occupies and is operating the farm. The event, which drew hundreds of supporters, neighbors, and staff from the partner groups, featured free food from food trucks and marked the completion of the 18-month rehabilitation and redevelopment of the 1860s-era barn and house.
