Lectures & Workshops

Gardening Programs

Bringing people together for urban gardening workshops, community building events, and more at the Trustees’ network of community gardens in Boston.

It’s time to get your hands dirty. It seems everyone is getting into gardening, and whether you just want to tour our gardens or create your own, The Trustees has all your gardening needs covered.

Whether you grow flowers or vegetables, have a container garden, or operate a small farm, our expert horticulturists are ready to help you have your best season yet.

Our 56 community gardens —totaling 15 acres across eight Boston neighborhoods—are tended and cared for by local residents. These oases of green are sources of neighborhood pride that connect people and place. They turn neighbors into friends, strengthen family bonds and traditions, and inspire joy in the shared work of growing fresh, healthy, and delicious food.

Funding for many of our free garden workshops this year is provided by TD Bank’s Ready Commitment.
