FENWAY—Meet Fenway Farms, which is exactly where you think it is (if where you think it is is on top of the oldest Major-League ballpark in the U.S. of A.): According to the Red Sox, the garden will change seasonally but staple herbs and veggies include arugula, green beans, broccoli, carrots, cucumbers, eggplant, kale, lettuce, pea shoots, sweet peppers, tomatoes, basil, chives, cilantro, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary, and thyme." The food will both end up in fans' bellies as well as help school young people on fresh produce. [BostInno]

DORCHESTER—Dot and the 2024 Games: It's complicated. "Key parcels that Boston 2024 officials would need to build out the athletes' compound as outlined in their bid document have already been approved for other uses, with several large building projects already under way or else green-lighted to start this year. And while Boston 2024 organizers have sat down with some key landowners on the peninsula, they have not engaged with others, including the pivotal Boston Teachers Union, whose current headquarters building on Mt. Vernon Street sits squarely in the middle of the proposed village footprint." [Reporter]
