The Boston Tree Party

Lisa Gross (G’11), a graduate student at Tufts in Studio Art, is the Chairman and Founder of the Boston Tree Party, a “collaborative campaign to plant 100 pairs of heirloom apple trees in civic spaces across Greater Boston.” The Chief of Operations of the project, Maura Schorr Beaufait (G’09), is also a Jumbo: she holds a dual-Master’s degree from Tufts in Community Health and Agriculture, Food and Environment. Their Tree Party Inauguration is this weekend at the Rose Kennedy Greenway.

In addition to the Boston Tree Party, Lisa Gross pioneered the Urban Homesteaders’ League, “a community venture dedicated to inspiring and empowering individuals and communities to shift from a lifestyle of passive consumption to one of active participation, creation, and connection.”
