Tonight, the Graduate Programs in City Planning and Urban Affairs and Metropolitan College’s Master of Liberal Arts in Gastronomy present “The Urban Farm,” a presentation by Farm Manager Jolie Olivetti of ReVision Urban Farm in Dorchester. Olivetti will focus on the history and importance of urban agriculture.
“The Urban Farm” is the first of three lectures in “The Edge: Urban and Regional Conversations at Boston University.” The series examines “the social, economic and environmental relevance of food to the city and its people.”
Tonight’s event will be held in Room 511 in the College of General Studies, 871 Commonwealth Avenue, beginning at 6 pm. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit the City Planning and Urban Affairs website, or contact Enrique R. Silva.
