Egleston Food Forest
A project developed through COGdesign and Friends of Egleston Square Branch Library of the Boston Public Library, partnered with Amy Wolfson. The original design was created by the Olmsted Firm in the early 1900’s, but most of the original design was lost to the passage of time. The Friends wanted a design with a large percentage of edible and native plants, space for community food education and event gathering, and a visually appealing streetscape. They also wanted the design to reflect Olmsted’s original design values and the Boston Public Library’s sustainable and green initiatives.
