Discussion on New Brook Farm Tonight
Bill Tuttle will speak about the efforts to create a New Brook Farm in West Roxbury.
Bill Tuttle will be a guest lecturer tonight speaking on the "New Brook Farm at the Site of the Brook Farm Utopian Community in West Roxbury of the 1840s."
Tuttle is the president of New Brook Farm, a planned community farm that would be located on the historic site of Brook Farm. Tonight's discussion is at 7 p.m. at the Springhouse Independent and Assisted Living home.
Brook Farm was perhaps the most famous utopian community of many in the 1840s because its members were well known intellectuals and Transcendentalists that included the author Nathaniel Hawthorne. The community and other interesting uses of the land on Baker Street will be discussed.
Tuttle is a planner for the state of Massachusetts, and is supported by a large board of community people who are interested in home gardening, local food sources, history, cooking, eating and more. His slide presentation will explain the dream of New Brook Farm.
Community members are welcome to attend the lecture at Springhouse at 44 Allandale St., Boston (near Faulker Hospital).
