Community Garden Build Day

Lowell residents from across the city gathered yesterday to clean up, build beds, and get all ready for the growing season in five of Lowell’s Community Gardens: Franklin Court and Whiting Street in the Acre, Smith Street in the Lower Highlands, Rotary Club Park in Back Central, and West 3rd Street in Centralville. The event was coordinated by a collaboration between ACTION (Acre Coalition to Improve our Neighborhood), Coalition for a Better Acre (CBA), Lowell Alliance for Families and Neighborhoods (LAFN), and Mill City Grows. This project has been generously funded by The City of Lowell and Mass Service Alliance.
