YLP leads BYEN Networking Dinner!

By Dylan Johnstone

Last month, the ENC Youth Leadership Program led the Boston Youth Environmental Network (BYEN) networking dinner. After preparing a presentation, the YLP shared their knowledge of guerrilla gardening and seed bombing with other Boston environmental youth groups.

Ears perked as Finness opened the presentation with a powerpoint explaining the difference between traditional guerrilla warfare and guerrilla gardening. Martin and Darren described the goals of seed bombing and prompted the audience to think of vacant lots in their own neighborhoods. Luis and Stephanie encouraged several eager volunteers to get their hands dirty and join the YLP in making their own seed bombs. A few of the participants even took their seed bombs home in the takeout containers leftover from dinner!
