Blue Hill Ave. Development Ideas; Boston Farm Money

BOSTON—The money will fertilize efforts already under way: "On Friday, Oct. 24, Mayor Walsh and the City of Boston's Office of Food Initiatives announced that the Hub will be receiving a $25,000 planning grant courtesy of the United States Department of Agriculture's Local Food Promotion Program."

MATTAPAN/ROXBURY—A similar effort worked in East Boston: "Officials from the city's Department of Neighborhood Development have teamed up with students from the Brandeis International Business School for the second year in a row to come up with a plan to revitalize abandoned parcels of land along Blue Hill Avenue, and transform them into spaces that could benefit residents in the surrounding community."
