The Farm at One Memorial Drive

Oxford Properties Group, Microsoft, and Green City Growers are proud to bring an urban community garden to One Memorial Drive, with seasonal, organic crops for you to grow and enjoy. Help us choose our first crop by visiting the survey below and voting for your favorite recipe. We’ll plant vegetables from the most popular response. Each week, a professional farmer from Green City Growers will come by to help us tend our crops and provide home gardening advice. Stop by and ask a question, water a plant, or just take a break from work. Please remember to observe social distancing protocol and to wear your mask when you visit. At the end of each growing season, we’ll make the recipe in the café and share our harvest with you to take home. Keep an eye out for summer and autumn recipes, as well. We look forward to growing great things with you!

The Farm at One Memorial is a place to step away from work, enjoy the fresh air, and experience the restorative benefits of growing your own food. Oxford Properties Group and Green City Growers are proud to bring an urban garden to One Memorial, with seasonal, organic vegetables for you to help grow and enjoy.

Visit our survey below and vote for your favorite spring recipe. With the help of Green City Growers, we’ll plant a crop from the most popular response. At the end of the growing season, we’ll feature the recipe—and our homegrown vegetables—in the café. We’ll also share the harvest with all One Memorial Drive employees and tenants to take home.

We hope the Farm becomes a place for community and healthy relaxation. We also hope it becomes a place to learn more about growing food.
