Neighborhood Ride Series: Mattapan
Thirty eight riders joined Vivian Ortiz and Mattapan Food & Fitness Coalition (MFFC) for a tour of Mattapan. The route included the newest section of the Neponset Trail, and stops at City Natives, and several community parks and gardens. The group heard from MFFC Vigorous Youth, a community member who received a “Love Your Block” grant to create a rock garden where people used to dump trash, and an Urban Farm Institute affiliate. The ride concluded with lunch and a prize raffle at Boston Nature Center. Lunch was catered by Fresh Food Generation.
