“Growing up in Somerville, urban agriculture was simply neighbors sharing some of their prized tomatoes or freshly grown basil. Supporting urban agriculture today is a return to those roots,” said Mayor Joe Curtatone.
Why is the Mayor talking about urban agriculture when it’s this cold out? The City, along with our partners at Groundwork Somerville, STEM Garden Institute, Shape Up Approved – Eat Well, and Somerville Public Schools, recently received a $36,877 urban ag grant from the state.
The grant is going to fund some very cool projects: A new raised bed and greenhouse will be built at the South Street Farm and a new hydroponics growing system will be set up at at Edgerly School. Along with providing students some hands on gardening experience, the school’s gardens will provide produce for the Somerville Mobile Farmers’ Market. You can’t get more local than that.
