Intensive Urban Agriculture Courses
The Urban Agriculture Ambassador Program (UAAP) is sponsored by the Mayor of Somerville for residents to learn how to grow food in one of the most densely populated cities in the country. Each spring, 18 residents are selected from a pool of applicants to everything about installing and maintaining raised bed gardens over the course of four Saturdays. Free to Somerville residents.
The Urban Farming Course is open to everyone, and is an intensive weekend course that is completed in two and a half days. In this course you will build a bed, install irrigation, plant, harvest, and everything in between.
