Build-a-Garden Program

Build-a-Garden is a program designed to get more people to grow their own food in Boston and Lynn. Local volunteers from The Food Project will assemble a city-friendly raised bed in which you can grow your own veggies (soil, compost, seeds, and plants included). Free planting workshop in May and ongoing phone and online support guarantee your success. Raised beds have many benefits: they can be built on pavement or on top of contaminated soil; it is easy to learn how to grow food in them; and they can be planted intensively to produce lots of food in a small space.

Applications accepted on rolling basis. Contact the Build-a-Garden Coordinator for more information:
