A voice for Bostonís community and residential gardeners, the Boston Gardeners Council (BGC) meets regularly to organize and promote sustainable urban gardening efforts and community gardening. We believe that gardens are as integral to Boston's larger environmental system as its parks and playgrounds, and that they are to be included in city planning and are to receive regular municipal support and services. We seek to make it possible for every neighborhood to have access to gardens, where residents of all ages, socio-economic backgrounds and cultures can enjoy the benefits of healthy food, recreation and community beautification, with neighbors working together for their common interest.
