The team at Eastie Farm is anyone and everyone who has stopped by to shovel mulch, plant cilantro, make fresh-pressed cider, or just ask questions! Behind the scenes, we are also supported by a board of 11 directors – East Boston community members working hard to make all of this possible, and having fun doing it!

I also strongly believe in resource sharing and am slowly building simple (bilingual) guides – drawing a lot of inspiration currently from Fruition Seeds. ”
