Groundwork Somerville

Groundwork Somerville proves from little acorns do mighty oaks grow. For this little organization does crazy mighty things, including the turning two abandoned lots into the South Street Farm, which produces some 2,000 pounds of food per year. Much of those crops are “world food crops,” which are meant to be both educational for Somerville born and bred students who come to the farm, and friendly to the immigrant communities that buy food from the farm, through the mobile farmers market and winter farmers market, two other programs that Groundwork Somerville runs.

Today, I visited the South Street Farm for their Cider Day Party, made a small donation and went home with some fresh apple cider.
