Plant a Garden

It’s finally that time of year again! After a long, snowy winter, The Food Project is ready to come out of hibernation. We’ve been busy this winter starting seedlings in Boston, Lincoln, and on the North Shore. Now, the seedlings are ready to be taken home by someone like you!


Swing by a seedling sale at one of our four locations to pick up a variety of seedlings ready to be planted. We will also be selling compost, fertilizer, and garden supplies.


Want to get started gardening this season but need some extra help? We welcome gardeners with questions every Saturday morning at the Dudley Greenhouse from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
