Love Letters to the Earth
Written by Kait Ziskin Levesque, Programs Manager
We at the Greenway Conservancy are so proud to be stewards of a contemporary public park in the heart of Boston. The Conservancy is committed to organic park care, diverse and resilient plantings, and creating a corridor for pollinators, making The Greenway a public space that is sustainable and earth-friendly.
For many park users, The Greenway is their piece of mother nature in a big, bustling city. For these reasons we were honored to act as the local caretakers with the honor of receiving the Boston Children’s Museum’s “Love Letters to the Earth”.
During April vacation week, when Boston’s floral and fauna were waking up from a long winter’s rest, the Boston Children’s Museum invited children to write notes to the earth as a way to say “thank you” and share what they were grateful for from the earth. The postcards were dropped off to us as a local Earth representative; a role we are thrilled to play! Thank you for the Boston Children’s Museum for recognizing our work and below you’ll find a few of our favorites.
