Growing a Community

Cambridge community gardens bring nature and friendship to the urban environment

Living in the city of Cambridge has many benefits: a diverse population, thousands of caring citizens, various types of restaurants, a vibrant creative community and the convenience of urban life. What the city lacks is what most cities lack: nature.

A lack of nature and opportunity to connect with the earth is why the Community Garden Program, run by the Conservation Commission, is so important.

BORN & RAISED IN CAMBRIDGE

“LET US LOVE OUR CITY”

Cambridge, Mass is losing the battle of overdevelopment, gentrification, and greed. What used to be a small, manageable city with a creative, spiritual, progressive center is now becoming a cold, crowded, callous city of immeasurable wealth. Some people are fine with it, but others, whose voices barely register, are not.
