The Somerville Community Growing Center
The Somerville Community Growing Center is a community green space that uses its rich outdoor programming, including environmental education and cultural performances, to create a space dedicated to engaging with nature while strengthening community bonds. The green space is a reclaimed urban lot that is now fully landscaped with seed-grown native plants, which are also grown for periodic public sales. Volunteer Orientations are held on the second Saturday and fourth Tuesday of each month.
Volunteer activities have included:
Watering/gardening/maintaining the site
Creating educational programming/events
Hosting Open Hours or events
Assisting the Children in Nature Initiative
Working on the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee
