Call for Writers: GrownUp StoryTime Fall Frenzy

Hello Writers!  Do you have a story you'd like to see read aloud?  GrownUp StoryTime is your chance...
Grown Up Story Time is an hour of funny, heartwarming, crazy, amazing stories read aloud.
Where do those stories come from?....YOU
What we need from you: Stories!! Fact/Fiction - and everything in between, we want your stories!
Stories that are chosen will be distributed among curated readers who will read them aloud at the next Grown Up Story Time event. See your story come to life and hear it with a new voice...Stories received by September 20th will be considered for the September 27th show (Event details here).

Do you have a classic go-to story you tell to all your new friends? A story that your significant other can recite verbatim? Are you a closeted Oprah fan fiction writer? Time to write it down and share it with a new audience. Or perhaps something you are embarrassed to tell but would make a great "Anonymous" submission.

Tips to make your story stand out:
Stories typically take from 3 to 10 minutes to read, which means max word count is about 1500 and shorter is definitely better (7-8 stories will be read at the event so time is a thing.) Think about your reader - punctuation/grammar should express your voice not your eight-grade English teachers (or your three year old brothers). We aren't judging just trying to make it easier on the reader. Topics? Anything goes. Remember this is Grown-Up story time. We can handle anything you throw at us.
Please send stories to BostonGUST@bootown.org

Urban Ag Workshop: Native Plants and Pollinators

Urban Ag Workshop: Native Plants and Pollinators

Saturday, September 23rd, 11am - 12:30pm
@ The Somerville Community Growing Center (22 Vinal Ave)
Please RSVP here.


Native bees are some of our most important pollinators. Non-native honeybees receive all the press (and make all the honey), but there are 4000 species of native bees that help pollinate crops and wildflowers too. Urban environments host a surprising number of bee species, probably due to the diversity of plants grown in window boxes, parks, and community gardens.


In this 90-minute workshop, you will learn all about pollination in urban environments from the perspective of both plants and bees. For the first half, we’ll focus on native bee diversity, biology, and their decline and conservation. Later, you’ll learn how these bees interact with plants in your urban garden and how to ensure that they visit your garden throughout the year. There will be a short demonstration at the end about how to build your own native bee house.


The workshop will be led by Nick Dorian, a Tufts University PhD student. He has studied and raised bumble bees for three years and is an enthusiastic urban gardener.  


Please RSVP here.
