A CitySprouts Tour of Cambridge’s Hurley Street Farm! ITS WET, BUT THE TOUR IS ON for 4PM TODAY! COME!

The CitySprouts’ Youth Leadership Team is excited to showcase their work at Cambridge’s Hurley Street Farm! Join them on May 5th at 4pm for an in person tour and learn about how youth have worked together to become stewards of this special place. Create a recycled paper seed ball to take home to plant. Register soon-space is limited.
 
Unlike the typical community garden consisting of various privately-run plots, the Hurley Street neighborhood farm is collectively staffed by local volunteers of all backgrounds. Employing Permaculture design principles, the farm’s socio-environmental goals focus on being “regenerative:” producing maximal nutrient-dense food, improving soil and ecosystem health for future growing, and serving as a gathering place for the community to celebrate food. The produce grown will benefit the landowners, volunteers, and Cambridge-centered food security organizations.
