Giving Thanks

As the summer season continues, we wanted to pause and share some of things that we’re thankful for at the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy.

Our thanks to our partners and friends who make the Greenway beautiful:

  • Our hundreds of volunteers who have contributed 2,171 hours working with our staff in 2012.
  • Our non-profit partner WORK Inc. who keep our parks clean from 7AM-11PM, every day of the year.
  • Valley Crest Landscape, who donated people, equipment and expertise to fix drainage issues in our Fort Point Channel Parks.
  • YouthBuild Boston and the EPA who helped construct our Dewey Demonstration rain garden.
  • The newly formed Friends of the North End Parks who donated thousands of daffodil bulbs and dozens of volunteers to plant them with us over the course of several volunteer workdays.

Our thanks to our partners and friends who make the Greenway vibrant:

  • The many groups we worked with to put on 300+ events and programs, from concerts and fitness classes to food festivals and markets.
  • Our Mobile Eats food vendors, bringing delicious and innovative food to park users every day.
  • The ICA, MFA, DeCordova, MIT and many others who helped bring more public art to the Greenway.
  • The thousands of people who visit the gardens, enjoy the fountains, or take part in events.
  • DeAnne Dupont from the Massachusetts Climate Action Network who volunteers her time to teach our Green & Grow apprentices about climate change and how to reduce their carbon footprint.

Our thanks to our Board of Directors, donors, members and supporters who help us fund new and exciting initiatives and support our operations.

And, of course, our thanks to you, whether you’re a regular park user, a member, a volunteer or donor, we thank you for your support.

From our family to yours, have a great and fun-filled summer!

-- the entire Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy staff
