The Dudley Greenhouse opened its doors in 2011 as a community green space and, during the past two and a half years, has served many residents and community groups.

The greenhouse provides space for food production as well as workshops, activities, and other programming that support residents in growing food and sharing cultures and resources. For this upcoming year, we invite proposals from groups and individuals to once again use and share this wonderful community resource.

Meet the Crew Leaders: Keely Curliss


Nineteen-year-old Keely Curliss first worked with The Food Project as a crew worker in the North Shore Summer Youth Program in 2008.

She was a member of DIRT Crew and an assistant crew leader for DIRT Crew, and held multiple academic year and summer internships. In addition, Keely served as a youth member of TFP's board of trustees for two years.

Keely just returned to her hometown of Cambridge, Mass., after spending a year serving as a City Year corps member in Baton Rouge, La. After a long year away, Keely will be returning this summer as a crew leader in The Food Project's Greater Boston Summer Youth Program.
