THE PROJECT:
As part of the Boston Parks and Recreation Departments
continuing efforts to provide quality natural

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

offer input regarding the material presented.

GARDENING TALK: Natural Vegetable Gardening from the Ground Up
Thinking of starting a vegetable garden? Picking up where you left off last year but looking to make 2015's garden even more productive? The Evening Garden Club of West Roxbury invites area residents to attend its March 4th lecture on "Natural Vegetable Gardening from the Ground Up" with popular speaker/horticulturist Paul Split. Split has been part of the Green Industry since 1971 and was formerly Director of Horticultural for the Xfinity Center, Mansfield for over 25 years. A teacher since the 1970s, his past students have included Massachusetts Master Gardeners. Split regularly speaks and judges floral design competitions at the Rhode Island, Philadelphia, New York, Connecticut and various Massachusetts flower and garden shows, including Boston, Springfield and Worcester. He is also a chef and nationally recognized horticultural consultant. According to Evening Garden Club president Ann Hopps Morgan, "Paul Split is much in demand. We are delighted to be able to bring him to West Roxbury as our March speaker." Morgan, herself an avid veggie-grower since childhood, characterizes gardeners as "into one-upsmanship when it comes to our homegrown produce: we want bragging rights to the biggest tomatoes, the tenderest beans, the most prolific squash. As a result, we're always on the lookout for ways to get better results." Split's lecture will focus on organic, low maintenance, affordable solutions. Topics on the agenda for the March 4th talk include: Soil profiles, raised beds and the benefits of composting Fertilizing/watering best practices Plant selection and starting plants from seed using a domed propagation chamber (One lecture attendee will win Paul Split's demo unit.) How to inter-plant vegetables, herbs and flowers for maximum yield and garden beauty The lecture will be held March 4, 2015 at the Elks Lodge, 1 Morrell Street at the corner of Spring Street, West Roxbury, 7:00 PM to approximately 8:30 PM. Doors open for registration starting at 6:45 PM. Admission is $10.00; reservations are not required. Free parking is available, and light refreshments will be served. In the event of a weather emergency, visitors are encouraged to check the club's web site for updates: http://gcfm.org/eveninggcwestroxbury/Home.aspx. If Boston Public Schools are closed on March 4th, the lecture will be canceled or postponed. All lecture attendees will receive a free small pot with "Split mix" growing medium and seeds. 48-cell seed-starting kits will be available for purchase before and following the lecture. Kits include a two-piece propagation chamber, a bag of growing medium, fertilizer and an assortment of seeds.

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?
