The Food Project is pleased to be able to open up our Greenhouse this spring and summer to local residents to grow food for their families in a temporary indoor community garden! As we firm up our plans for our long-term use of the community bays of the greenhouse, we are happy to be able to offer up the space to neighborhood residents for food production this year. For $25, you can have your own 4'x8' raised bed in which to grow short and medium-height plants such as salad greens, collards, broccoli, and summer squash as well as access to a communal bed that  will produce an abundance of tall heat-loving crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, okra and more!

Access to the beds will be limited to Tuesdays, 3-6 p.m., Thursdays, 1-6 p.m., and Saturdays, 9 a.m. - 12:30pm. On all days an experienced grower will be on site to give advice. We are particularly excited to find new gardeners who are looking for support as they learn about growing.

Download an application and mail it to The Food Project (or drop it at the office). We're looking to fill spots by the beginning of April to give gardeners a head start on the growing season by beginning planting in the greenhouse by mid-April.

For more information, download the application or call 617-442-1322 x13.
