BPD in the Community: BPD Teen Police Academy Gets into Gardening with the Urban Farming Institute

Today, Tuesday, July 24, 2018, members of the Teen Police Academy learned that team work and some elbow grease make quick work of weeding and mulching at the Urban Farming Institute located behind the Sportsman’s Tennis Club in Mattapan. For the fourth year in a row, the volunteers from UFI worked with the teens to show them the different aspects of urban farming, and despite the heat and humidity, those kids--and officers--dug in and had a great time!
