Allandale Woods Urban Wild Community Meeting

?THE PROJECT:
As part of the Boston Parks and Recreation Departments
continuing efforts to provide quality natural
and passive recreation areas for use and enjoyment by
city residents, efforts are underway to make access
improvements to the Allandale Woods Urban Wild.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We are looking for interested community members to
help us in determining how access and way- finding
improvements will look and function in the future.
Urban wild renovations such as this represent a
unique opportunity to make improvement which
better enable residents to explore and enjoy nature
in the city, while still managing the areas for plant and
wildlife conservation purposes.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
Representatives from Kyle Zick Landscape Architecture,
as well as the Parks Department Project Manager,
will be on hand to give a brief presentation of the
project scope including improvements to the trailheads,
site access, signage, and vegetation, as well as
of the existing site conditions. Following this brief
presentation, community members will be able to
offer input regarding the material presented.

Newton Choral Society Presents Blooming in Boston
Blooming in Boston Church of the Holy Name 1689 Centre Street West Roxbury, MA 02132 We salute Boston's preeminence as a flourishing music center with a program devoted to local composers. Central works include Garden Party, by Daniel Pinkham and Narcissus, by James Woodman. Garden Party, a comic opera, offers a decidedly whimsical and irreverent take on Adam and Eve's banishment from the Garden of Eden. Narcissus, commissioned by the Newton Choral Society in 1995, tells the ancient Greek myth of the beautiful youth who becomes spellbound by his own reflection. Also on the program are works by Carson Cooman set to poems by beloved writers: Eros, by Ralph Waldo Emerson, and The Choir Invisible, by George Eliot. Susan Consoli, soprano; Tom Jones, baritone; Mark Feldhusen, pianist

Dinner & A Movie
Maestra 15m - Director Catherine Murphy. Maestra explores the experience of eight women who, as young girls, taught on the Cuban Literacy Campaign of 1961. The volunteer teachers lived with the families they taught, working alongside them in the fields during the daytime & teaching classes (often by kerosene lantern) at night. In the midst of the campaign, the Bay of Pics was invades, and in spite of the dangers and difficulties, their eyes sparkle as they share their stories. The No Name Painting Association 23m - Director Director Joe Griffen, China. During the Cultural Revolution, when only art that served the political goals of the regime was allowed, a group of young underground artists met in Beijing's parks to paint what was then considered subversive art - landscapes, still-lifes and self-portraits. They numbered some fifteen young people, men and women, between the ages of 16 and 30. At great risk to themselves and flaunting the laws against assemblies greater than three people, they gathered in small groups to paint, to exchange ideas, to pass along hand-copied forbidden books by Kerouac and Ginsberg. Cowboys Of Color: A Multi-Cultural Legacy - 28m - Directed by Coy Poitier. The American Frontier, also known as the Wild West, has been the source of countless legends, icons, and heroes such as, Billy The Kid, Jesse James and Lawman Wyatt Earp. The myth of the Wild West has inspired many historians, educators, writers, and filmmakers to publish stories about the dangers of life in the Western Frontier. From famous singing cowboys, to the legendary cowboy and Indian battles, no other stories of American history are more celebrated in books and film than those of the Wild West. But is that the whole story?

Souper Bowl 7
On Sunday February 8th, from 2-6PM at the Haley House Bakery Caf in Roxbury's Dudley Square, a dozen chefs will serve soups made from locally sourced ingredients as a fundraiser for Haley House's Soup Kitchen in the South End. Upon entering, attendees will select a handcrafted ceramic bowl, courtesy of MassArt's Clay for Change program. They will then make their way from station to station, sampling the soups produced with locally sourced ingredients. In sampling a variety of these soups, people realize that with a little creativity, folks can eat locally all year round. At the end of the event, the attendees are invited to take their bowls home with them. Six years ago, the Boston Localvores, an informal group interested in supporting the local food movement, approached the Haley House Bakery Caf with the concept of a Souper Bowl, a tasting event spotlighting locally sourced soups. Four years ago, MassArt's Clay for Change program proposed a newly reinvented Souper Bowl, as a fundraiser for Haley House's Soup Kitchen in the South End. Diverse soups featured in past Souper Bowls have included: Butternut Squash and Apple Soup/Cream of Carrot Soup/French Onion Soup/Kambocha Mash Soup/Kale Soup/Pea Tendril Soup/Pork & Bean Soup/Root Vegetable Lentil Soup/Scotch Broth/Seafood Chowder/Sweet & Spicy Parsnip Soup Ingredients for the Souper Bowl are sourced from a selection of local farms and purveyors. Iggy's Breads generously donates bread for this occasion. Situated in the South End neighborhood of Boston, Haley House's soup kitchen is intent on building community and relationships at six breakfasts for homeless men and three lunches for neighborhood elders every week. It serves home-cooked, nutritious meals as a way to create a space of refuge from the violence and anonymity of the streets. There are no metal detectors or law enforcement officers present. The personalist focus of the Meals Programs offers a broader perspective on the systems that create hunger and poverty, while working to create alternatives to those systems. The funds raised in Souper Bowl 7 will provide one month of food to be served in the soup kitchen. Clay for Change is a student activity group at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and "Empty Bowls" is one of its primary initiatives. Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. The basic premise is simple: handcrafted ceramic bowls are created, guests are invited to enjoy soup within the bowl and for a cash donation they keep the bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity - in this case, Haley House. Clay for Change works to build strong connections between MassArt and the wider community through the arts and ceramics in particular.
