Plug in Southie: Planet Southie's Update

Join South Boston Grows 7/28 at 7:30 p.m. for the 2011 summer party at The Seapoint (376 E. 8th Street) to learn how to help grow food in our neighborhood. Fresh, local dishes will be featured. Tickets are available at the door for $20, or $15 if you donate a used garden tool. All proceeds from the event help fund youth programming.

Walk/Ride Day is 7/29. The Green Streets Initiative celebrates and promotes the use of sustainable, active transportation. On these days, people everywhere are invited to first, Go Green (walk, bike, use public transit, skate, canoe, etc.) and also Wear Green! South Boston Running Emporium (343 W Broadway) offers 10% off purchases to people who wear green and mention that they are participating in Walk/Ride Day. Blue Tierra Chocolate Cafe (258 West Broadway) is giving away a free piece of handmade gourmet chocolate to walk/ride day participants.
