What Unites Us! A collaborative program to celebrate the immigrant experience, build community and cross-cultural understanding, and promote healthy living for aging residents of the City of Boston. 

Attendees will begin the program at Heritage Park on the Greenway with a community leader sharing his or her immigrant experience. Attendees will then join us for a meditative walk around the labyrinth. Then we'll walk to The KITCHEN for a seasonal cooking demonstration and free lunch prepared by chefs from some of Boston’s neighborhood restaurants. Each program highlights a country of origin.

About The Trustees and The KITCHEN

As one of the largest owners of agricultural land and the premier steward of the cultural and natural landscape of Massachusetts, The Trustees extends its leadership to transform the local food system by connecting residents and visitors back to the land and sharing the Commonwealth’s collective agrarian heritage through innovative retail and educational experiences at the Boston Public Market in the heart of downtown Boston.
