Summertime and the Learning Is Easy

The country’s last continuously operating World War II Victory Gardens (founded in 1942), Boston’s Fenway Victory Gardens, whose 7.5 acres have more than 500 gardens for city residents, are part of Frederick Law Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace. Metropolitan College’s Urban Agricultural course students, who visit gardens, learn basic cultivation skills through hands-on activities, and study the social and cultural sides of urban agriculture and the political and city planning aspects of urban agriculture projects, met there for a class and a tour of the gardens on July 7.
