The Food Project (TFP), with support from the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative (DSNI), is seeking partners to share community space in the recently opened Dudley Greenhouse.
The Dudley Greenhouse is a 10,000-square-foot facility in the Dudley Neighborhood of Roxbury. Owned by DSNI and leased by The Food Project, the greenhouse operates year-round as a food production and educational space. The Food Project operates enterprise projects that employ youth in half the space. In the remaining space, The Food Project has started running community educational programming, and is now seeking community partners to run their own programming in this space, with limited support from TFP.
Our hope is that by bringing in a few different organizations and/or individuals to use the space, the greenhouse will better serve a wide range of community interests and needs. Examples of projects include:
- Growing food in raised bed gardens by a class of students studying the food system
- Growing seedlings for nonprofit projects that improve food access for underserved communities
- Educational/celebratory space for groups exploring the relationship between food and the health of our communities
The request for proposals consists of the following two documents:
