Mobile Farmers Market

The Trustees Mobile Farmers Market is a subscription program for people in Boston and Cambridge with SNAP/EBT. The Healthy Incentives Program (HIP) fully reimburses our customers’ purchases from us.

Boston Community Gardens

The Trustees is the largest nonprofit owner of community gardens in Boston, with 56 under Trustees management, totaling 15 acres across eight Boston neighborhoods: Dorchester, East Boston, the Fenway, Jamaica Plain, Roxbury, Mattapan, Mission Hill, and the South End. Our role as caretaker of Boston’s green spaces doesn’t stop with our own gardens: we help to coordinate activities related to all of the city’s 175 community gardens, touching more than 18,000 individuals and families annually.
