Dewey Demonstration Garden Takes Root

27, Mar, 2012 Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy

Despite the on-again, off-again coming of spring, the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy is continuing efforts to enhance the west garden beds of Dewey Square Park. This work, started last year, but delayed in the fall, builds on our existing practice of organic landscape management.  We’ll be telling the story over the next few months as the Conservancy staff works with a number of non-profit partners to install improvements which include:

  • a four-season colorful pollinator garden
  • an outdoor classroom with a demonstration table and raised edible garden
  • a rain garden
  • an urban compost bin area

Our partners include our Green and Grow teen program, the North Bennett Street School and YouthBuild Boston. We’ll be posting additional updates on each of the elements in the coming weeks.
