  • Pick fruit to donate to food banks!

    San Jose, CA, US Garden to Table

    Did you know that just in a 1.5 mile radius around San Jose State University, there are over 3,000 fruit trees? We see this as an underutilized resource, and instead of letting fruit go to waste, we organize volunteers to pick and donate it. We assess, harvest, and donate this fruit to the Olinder Food Program and Five Wounds Church . On average, we harvest 1,500 pounds of fruit per week.

    Our goal is to create fruit picking teams around Downtown San Jos made up by community members themselves and take advantage of the hundreds of fruit trees in the area.

  • The Race Underground: Boston, New York, and the Incredible Rivalry That Built America’s First Subway

    Boston, MA, US Old South Meeting House

    Doug Most shares his favorite details and stories about the building of the first two subways in America, from his new book, "The Race Underground: Boston, New York, and the Incredible Rivalry That Built America's First Subway." It is a "meticulously researched history," says The Economist and Kirkus Reviews called it "An almost flawlessly conducted tour back to a time when major American cities dreamed big." Doug Most will talk about the characters behind these incredible projects, including two brothers from one of America's most famous families, the man who put beautiful pianos into living rooms around the world, and the engineer whose firm built New York's subway and went on to build Boston's famous Big Dig. He will bring photographs from his book, "The Race Underground," and help you appreciate the marvel of underground subway travel. Doug is a deputy managing editor at The Boston Globe and the former editor of the Globe Sunday Magazine.

    Sales and signing to follow.
