Launched by Lisa Gross in 2011, The Boston Tree Party is "a collaborative campaign to plant 100 pairs of heirloom apple trees in civic spaces across Greater Boston. As an urban agriculture project, the campaign creates vital gathering places, builds community connections, and improves community health. As a conceptual art project, the Boston Tree Party engages with metaphor and symbolism, and playfully reimagines patriotic and political language, imagery, and forms of association. And as a symbolic political act, the project takes a stand for universal access to fresh, healthy food; for greening our cities; cleaning our air and waterways; reducing our city’s carbon footprint; creating habitat for urban wildlife; and for protecting the biodiversity and heritage of our food."
