Now that we have completed our three trips to each neighborhood, we wanted to share our absolute favorite pictures from this series.
(Blue Hills) This one was taken at the Watkinson Community Garden on Bloomfield Avenue, behind the Unitarian meetinghouse. This is more like a farm than a community garden. We have no idea why this wheelbarrow was perched in a tree; on other trips here, all equipment was stored in places one would expect it to be.

City parks have been declared closed until further notice.
For the second year in a row, the late Roberto Clemente was commemorated in Colt Park for his work as a humanitarian and civil rights leader. Clemente, who died on December 31, 1972, was remembered yesterday with flowers, remarks, and a poem.
Pedro Bermudez, Jr., in his welcome message, described Clemente as “a person who was completely selfless.”
Participants were led in the singing of the “Star Spangled Banner” and “La Borinqueña.” Continue reading 'Remembering Roberto Clemente'»
