The more you know, the more you’ll grow!
We strive to educate all of our members on gardening in an urban setting, invasive plants according to MA, building trellises and arbors, which tools to use what, and much more. We have an incredibly diverse membership who have a wealth of knowledge to share. Through workshops, newsletter articles, and one on one lessons our members are always willing to share what they know and help each other have bountiful seasons.
