The South Street Farm is Somerville’s first urban farm! Within the last 24 months, Groundwork Somerville’s Green Team and community volunteers have transformed two barren, paved parking lots on South Street into an abundant food forest. Harvested produce is sold at the Somerville Mobile Farmers’ Market, donated to local food pantries, and used by the Green Team for special events and healthy eating workshops.

The South Street Farm is an important part of the movement towards sustainability and revitalization in Somerville. We’re glad that Green Team members are the stewards of this project and consequently placed at the forefront of the wider national urban agriculture movement! Here’s to transforming vacant lots into greener, healthier, productive and aesthetically pleasing urbanscapes!
