The CDRC continues our FIT CITY work as we help our neighbors on Woolson Street in Mattapan plan a new community garden. At a public meeting in January, the neighborhood voiced strong support for a community garden at the city-owned vacant lot at 44 Woolson. In February, the Department of Neighborhood Development issued an RFP for a garden on that site. In March, the Boston Natural Areas Network submitted a proposal in collaboration with Woolson Street neighbors and the CDRC. While we await official word from the City, we’re continuing to work with the neighbors in planning the garden. If all goes well, our team will be awarded the project, and gardeners will plant their first seeds in June.
What will your garden grow?
