A Championship Worthy Garden

Our Farm. November.

Sunday night saw the Kansas City Royals take home their first World Series win in thirty years. While the Red Sox didn’t quite have the record that we would have liked, it was a banner year for ballpark-grown produce courtesy of Fenway Farms. While we’ll still be growing until the end of the season, we’re taking the time now to reflect on the first year of this very exciting project!

Check out this end-of-season update and recap of year one of Fenway Farms.

Farm-to-Table at Osteria Posto in Waltham

Earlier in October we installed an exciting new garden at Osteria Posto, the Waltham location of the popular Davis Square Italian restaurant set to open this month! The garden is planted in a series of large galvanized troughs – a new and unique aesthetic for Green City Growers.

New Garden at The Street in Chestnut Hill

A few weeks ago we installed this new community garden at The Street, an outdoor mall in Chestnut Hill. We will be holding free gardening clinics in 2016, similar to our garden at Assembly Row in Somerville! If you’re in the area, be sure to swing by and check out this exciting new project!

The Element of Delight

GCG Director of Horticulture Laura Feddersen talks about her love of growing plants, and how she transformed a degree in architecture into a career in urban farming. Part four of our “Why We Do What We Do Series.” While you’re at it, check out the previous pieces spotlighting Erik, Augusta, and Leilani.

Warm Days + Cool Nights = Cold Frames

Again this week we’re seeing a surge of warm weather, but given the cold snap a few weeks back, winter could be here at any time. GCG cold frames help you to extend the growing season, allowing you to harvest into December, and begin planting early next spring!

The Science of Garlic

During fall garden shutdowns, our farmers are planting garlic, which won’t be ready to harvest until next summer. Garlic needs a few weeks of cool weather to establish, and then will overwinter and resume growth in the spring. Crops like carrots and spinach will also overwinter for an early spring harvest!
