Growing Civic Fruit: Teaser and Documentary Screening

Boston Tree Party

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.

The event, co-sponsored by Artists in Context and the Boston University Gastronomy program, will also feature presentations by art critic Nicole Caruth and BU Professor Rachel Black. A panel discussion, moderated by curator Judy Fox, about the intersection of art, urban agriculture, and civic engagement will follow. The evening will conclude with an apple cider reception to celebrate the launch of the second Boston Tree Party planting campaign.

The folks at the Boston Tree Party have a little teaser video that they said we could share with you guys right here. Check it:
