The Food Project's Build-a-Garden initiative supports Boston residents and organizations who want to grow their own food in raised-bed gardens. We provide you with: • A raised-bed garden filled with healthy, safe soil• 12 free seedlings in May of your first year • Free gardening workshops and a Growing Guide• Ongoing support through drop-in open hours at the Dudley Greenhouse
Eligibility: Residents of Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan are welcome to apply. Priority is given to those with financial need and to families with children. No prior gardening experience is required; enthusiasm and a willingness to learn are all you need!
Cost: To make the program accessible to all, The Food Project has a pay-what-you-can policy, with a minimum contribution of $25 from individuals or families. Because we have limited funding, we ask that you contribute as much as possible toward the full cost of materials and labor, which is $250 per bed. We ask that organizations pay the full cost of each bed.
Apply now! We accept applications year-round and schedule builds on a rolling basis. Contact us with any questions or concerns at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-442-1322 x55.
