Seats of Consciousness
With surplus lumber gleaned from pallets and volunteers with knowledge of carpentry, we began Seats of Consciousness, a skill building program where community teenagers and incarcerated adults from the Billerica House of Corrections learn carpentry skills by designing and building park benches and planters for the community.
Our seats can be found all over Greater Boston. From a Jamaican restaurant in Dorchester, to an elementary school in Brookline, from Marsh Plaza at Boston University, to the town center of Needham, many businesses and organizations have show their support. Benches are available for purchase now, and all funds go to support Fair Foods and Fair Exchange.
