Best of Boston
2021 Best City Farm
Urban Farming Institute
By training urban farmers at its seven (and growing!) plots across Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan — then selling their harvest to area restaurants like Dudley Café and Fresh Food Generation — this nonprofit helps Bostonians plant deeper roots, literally, even in neighborhoods where grassy space is sparse. And when we build better-fed families and healthier communities, we all reap the benefits.
