Join Boston’s architecture, design and nonprofit community at the BSA for this year’s launch of Common Boston festival week at the dParty. In the spirit of our theme, “Off the Grid,” you will be exposed to sustainable-living ideas that are already at your disposal in Boston.

Learn about bike sharing, urban gardening, community-supported agriculture and bike-powered machines; see a bee-and-honey-production presentation; listen to good music; and taste beverages grown from a city garden plot, all under a canopy of a suspended bicycle display, curated by BSA Space curators, over,under.

In addition, there will be an art installation by Mary Hale, honey-infused beverages concocted by the local apiarist at the Intercontinental Hotel, and a raffle with the possibility to win a sustainable opportunity. Admission is free with a new or working flashing bicycle light that will be donated to the Boston Cyclists Union, or $10 at the door.

Registration is highly recommended for this event.
