Fresh air, no Harvard Sq.: Allston farm eyed - Business - BostonHerald.com
Harvard officals don't seem particularly supportive ("Keep it all in perspective,” said Harvard spokesman Joe Wrinn, stressing the sustainable farm proposal is just “one of many ideas for future development of Allston") so it is great to hear that the idea is gaining support from multiple diverse groups across the University (Harvard’s Sustainable Allston committee and Harvard Medical School’s Center for Health and the Global Environment). Based on the positive comments that readers posted on this blog yesterday, there is also great interest from the community.
Someone asked yesterday how to support this idea. I think the most important thing is to keep public attention on it. Ask about it at Harvard Allston Task Force meetings (the next one is Monday at 6:30 at the Honan Library). Write a letter to the editor of the Herald (firstname.lastname@example.org)to follow up their story and voice your support. Call Paul Holloway in the Mayor's Office (617-635-2678).
