Tree Mob™! Radishing, Simply Radishing

Radishing, Simply Radishing
Vegetables are good for humans, but can trees benefit from them as well? This summer and fall, the Arboretum experimented with growing radishes, perhaps a first since Benjamin Bussey farmed this land in the early 1800s. Living Collections Fellow Jenna Zukswert will speak about the reasons for planting a taproot crop among our trees and whether there will be more veggies in the Arboretum’s future. Meet in the walnut collection at Acc. # 1181*D, Juglans nigra, on Valley Road across from the Centre Street Gate on Tuesday, November 1 at 3:00pm.

Read about and view a video of our recent goat mob, if you missed it.

Parking: Park on Bussey Street (no tires on the side walk, please) and enter through the Bussey Street Gate. Follow Hemlock Hill Road to Valley Road towards the Centre Street Gate. (Centre Street Gate is closer, but has limited parking.)

Public Transportation: Take the MBTA Orange Line to Forest Hills. At the upper level of the station, cross Washington Street and walk left to the Arboretum’s Washington Street Gate. Follow Blackwell Footpath to South Street. Cross South Street and reenter the Arboretum. Follow the road to the intersection and continue on Valley Road. Signs will be posted.
