Glen Street Community Garden Expansion Public Meeting, September 7

Mayor Katjana Ballantyne, Ward 1 City Councilor Matt McLaughlin, and City of Somerville staff invite you to a virtual public meeting about expanding the Glen Street Community Garden in East Somerville. The City is finalizing plans to expand the existing community garden into an adjacent vacant lot at 5 Palmer Avenue, more than doubling its current size and adding approximately 15 new, appropriately sized plots that will be manageable for gardeners of all skill levels. The expansion will also feature accessible garden beds, water hookups, a shed, and some shaded gathering areas.

At this meeting, City consultants and staff will present two draft designs for community feedback, with construction expected in Spring 2023. The meeting will take place Wednesday, September 7, at 6 p.m. on Zoom. To register, go to
