Maple Syrup Project



Join us this special once-a-year night when we clean off the dirt, get dressed up, and celebrate the amazing accomplishments of the past year, while raising money for the big year ahead and toasting to our amazing volunteers and interns who have put so much effort in over the past 12 months. They’ve planted seeds, boiled syrup and built beds, and are ready to do it again this year! We’ll be celebrating all night with live music by Hornography, prizes, and beer samples. Click Here

Garden Youth Crew

Winter Hill GYC

In the summer after the 5th-8th grades, members of Groundwork Somerville’s Garden Youth Crew spend six weeks learning about gardening and the environment. They maintain the urban schoolyard gardens for 4-6 hours a week, do community service, go on field trips, and create a product to sell at local farmers markets. Click Here
