Help Support the Growing Center's 2020 Cultivate Campaign
Renovation + Regrowth 2018-2020
The Somerville Community Growing Center reopened in 2019 after many months of construction and renovation that were funded by a City of Somerville CPA grant. The new site has many wonderful new features, including a native pollinator garden, an herb garden, a rain garden, a demonstration garden, children’s nature play features, composting area in development, a mosaic turtle table, and many new pathways. We hope that you were able to enjoy it last season. Although we are closed currently during the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope to be open later in the season.
The Center is asking for your help this season to pay for the remaining work needed to complete the renovation, to support our yearly operating costs, and––right now––to support ongoing coordination and communication efforts that include plans to grow nutrient-rich produce onsite this spring, which will be distributed via area food security partners.
Please join our fundraising effort and consider making a donation to the Growing Center. The Center thanks you!
