Calendar of Events: Hurley Street Farm Opening Day

Event Date: Apr 28, 2019 11:30 AM - 2:00 PM

Join us April 28th at 11:30am for OPENING DAY!

The Hurley St. Neighborhood Farm at 213 Hurley Street serves as a prototype for future "communal gardens" in Cambridge. With the help of local volunteers, Green Cambridge took over a large East Cambridge space on Hurley St. and converted it into a neighborhood farm. The farm departs from the conventional community garden in both its mission and its location. Unlike the typical community garden consisting of various privately-run plots, the neighborhood farm is collectively staffed by local volunteers of all backgrounds.

A core staff of volunteers help in the construction, planting, continual maintenance, and harvesting, with individual volunteer groups engaging at intermittent dates. The farm's location on a private backyard aims to create community resiliency amongst neighbors and take advantage of underutilized growing space.

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 space for the community to celebrate food. The produce grown will benefit the landowners, volunteers, and Cambridge-centered food security organizations. This way, those who help can appreciate the direct results of the work they've contributed, hopefully sparking new passions for community gardening.
