Massachusetts Horticultural Society

The Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (HNRCA) and the Massachusetts Horticultural Society (Mass Hort) are working together to unite culinary and horticultural practice with nutrition science.

Current initiatives include the Talk and Taste Public Lecture Series held at the HNRCA and a Community Vegetable Garden housed in the lobby of the HNRCA.

Vegetables from theĀ  garden will be donated to St. Francis House, a day shelter in downtown Boston that provides basic, rehabilitative, and housing services for the homeless. Read a press release on the Lobby Garden here.
