Open Hours Are Expanding! And Our Evening Hours Will be Earlier!


We are adding Open Hours for the fall! With these new times, we hope to increase accessibility to a greater variety of Somerville residents to enjoy the winding walks, herbs gardens, sunshine, and nature watching afforded by our slice of greenery in the city. New Hours are Friday mornings, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.

With the days growing shorter, we're also moving our Tuesday Open Hours to an earlier time: 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm for the rest of October. (And 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm for November.)

This is in addition to our Saturday Open Hours, which remain 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Please be sure to check our calendar, here, to confirm exact dates and times before planning to visit. We are still filling volunteer host spots for Friday mornings as well, so please be in touch if you're interested in hosting. In the interest of keeping our community safe and healthy, we've created guidelines in accordance with the City of Somerville's re-opening plans, which you can learn more about here. The Growing Center asks that all visitors to the garden respect the following guidelines upon entering the space:

  • Visits are limited to 20 people at any one time (10 in the upper garden and 10 in the lower)

  • Wash/Sanitize your hands when you enter and leave the garden

  • Please wear a face mask or cloth covering at all times that social distancing is not possible

  • Keep social distance, maintain 6 feet from anyone not in your party, and allow others to pass

  • If you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or have been recently been exposed, please stay home

  • Please do not touch or use communal surfaces

  • Keep your visit short

  • Please note, bathrooms are closed and you must carry out all trash
