Interested in Growing Year-Round Through Community-Oriented Gardening Projects? Dudley Greenhouse invites proposals.


“Dudley residents have incredible expertise and energy around food. Our neighbors have built so many creative mechanisms to access the great food they want in their community.” – Sutton Kiplinger, Greater Boston Regional Director, The Food Project
 
We are currently accepting applications from groups interested in growing food at the Dudley Greenhouse in community-oriented projects. Apply now.
 
 
Seniors/Residents with Physical Disabilities
We provide 8 raised-beds for seniors and/or residents with physical disabilities for whom the greenhouse provides more accessible garden space than outdoor gardens. Application deadline: August 19, 2016—5 p.m. Apply now.
 
Each year, the Dudley Greenhouse community seeks out partners to run greenhouse/gardening programs that benefit residents of our nearby communities - Roxbury, Dorchester and Mattapan. In particular, we seek opportunities to support Dudley residents and organizations serving the Dudley Community.
 
The Dudley Greenhouse is a 10,000 square-foot facility in the Dudley Neighborhood of Roxbury. Owned by the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative (DSNI) and leased by The Food Project, the greenhouse operates year round as a food production and educational space.
 
Food Project staff manage production and work in partnership with community members and organizations to run programming at the greenhouse.  The Dudley Greenhouse Advisory Committee (GAC) is a community advisory group that works with The Food Project (TFP) staff to ensure that the Dudley Greenhouse operates in accordance with the vision, values and purpose for which it is intended.
