35 Wyman Street: beautifying and creating a more sustainable community center at 35 Wyman Street. Currently underway: building a Cob wall on the Forbes sreet side of the property; planning a Wyman Street block party.
CSA Project and Gardens: In the fall of 2010, the HeARTbeat Collective began working towards maximizing their garden space with the intention of growing more food for the collective. Currently, we are growing food (as local as it gets!!!) that is shared between all house mates in our raised bed gardens, herbs in our lovely crescent moon garden and flowers most everywhere. Plans for this season include creating a mandala garden that will more than double our vegetable growing space and beginning mushroom cultivation. This project is being headed up by our in house visionary artist and urban farmer K. Lenore Siner. www.klenoresiner.com
Classes to Reconnect: the heARTbeat collective hosts teachers from around the world teaching skills to help us heal and reconnect to ourselves, each other and our environment. See our schedule on the Calendar page.
