Loring Greenough House - 12 South St, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130, USA


Beekeepers, start your smokers! Enter the smoker contest at the Urban Agriculture Fair for a chance to win a shiny new hive tool and bragging rights. Object of the contest; keep your smoker going longer than anyone else. That’s it. You’re given five strike-anywhere matches, a full sheet of the Jamaica Plain Gazette, and 10 minutes to forage for your fuel on the Loring Greenough property. A scale will be used to equalize the amount of fuel each contestant uses. Green vegetation, and trim, siding and other contents of the Loring Greenough house not permitted. Each contestant has three minutes to light their smoker. After the smoker is lit and the three minutes are up, the winner is determined by how long the smoker continues to smoke without squeezing the bellows. The last smoker smoking wins.

Contest will begin around 12:30 p.m. Check for a full schedule by Friday, 9/12.

There will be tons of other activities, games, demonstrations, music, and more. Fun for all ages. There is no entrance fee. Rain cancels event.
