It’s Earth Day!

"City farmers" tend their gardens in the Fenway administered by the Fenway Civic Association. Four hundred twenty-five gardens are tilled on these five acres in metropolitan Boston, 04/1973.
Ernst Halberstadt, photographer.  From the series: DOCUMERICA: The Environmental Protection Agency’s Program to Photographically Document Subjects of Environmental Concern, compiled 1972 - 1977

This year’s Earth Day theme is “Green Cities” and the gardeners of Boston’s Fenway Victory Gardens have been at it since 1942!  (We wonder if cityofbostonarchives has any other photos from these historic gardens…)
Find out what you can do in your city or community for Earth Day!
