Millennium Fellowship Project: Charles River Parks Demonstration Garden
The Charles River Parks Demonstration Garden is an exciting project to create a hands-on learning experience for groups around key environmental issues facing Boston, Cambridge, and beyond. After passing through phases of research, development, and permitting in the Fall of 2020, the demonstration garden will be ready to be installed in the Charles River parks in Spring of 2021 and used as a tool to engage groups of all ages and backgrounds around ideas such as climate resilience, food security, pollution, and the basics of ecosystem health. By partnering with local parks organizations, such as the Charles River Conservancy, the demonstration garden will fit into the existing fabric of parks infrastructure and community programs to enhance environmental learning for all.
