Help Support the Growing Center's Cultivate Campaign

Renovation + Regrowth 2023

Donate to the Friends Today through PayPal:


The Somerville Community Growing Center reopened in 2019 after many months of construction and renovation that were funded by a City of Somerville Community Preservation Act (CPA) grant and generous donations. The new site has many wonderful new features, including new ADA pathways, stage area pergola & storage units, rain gardens, demonstration raised garden beds and containers, native pollinator gardens, herb gardens, children’s nature play features, composting, a mosaic turtle table, and new electrical hookups. We hope you’ve been back to see what’s been growing the last few years! 


The Center is asking for your help this season to consider supporting our diverse, ongoing programming  and yearly operating costs.  Unrestricted gifts allow us the most flexibility with your donation.
