The Farm at Goddard House

Goddard House Assisted Living, a senior living center in Brookline, was founded in 1849 as the first private, non-profit home for elders in Massachusetts. Goddard House offers both traditional and memory support assisted living apartments. In 2013, GCG installed four triple-raised adaptable 4x8 raised beds, two of which are dedicated for those residents in the memory care unit. In 2015, Goddard House obtained a special permit from the city of Brookline to house the first chicken coop for a non-residential facility. The coop houses six chickens, who in turn provide the residents with humorous and plucky companions. Green City Growers farmers visit Goddard House for weekly education and maintenance sessions for the vegetable gardens and provide monthly coop maintenance and clean-up.
