Community Grown: Art & Playfulness in the Community Gardens

TD Garden Art

Calling all community artists! The second year of our partnership with the Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics and TD Bank to build creativity and community in Boston's gardens is underway, and we're looking for artists to bring installations and programming to three gardens: Joe Ciampa Community Garden in East Boston, Berkeley Community Garden in the South End, and the Fenway Victory Gardens. Apply here!

Urban gardens are sanctuaries of green among the hustle and bustle of city life. This year, the Trustees is pleased to once again partner with the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics with the support of TD Bank on the Community Grown program. This year, the program will focus on infusing design, art, community building, and playfulness into three Boston community gardens: Berkeley Community Garden in the South End, Joe Ciampa Community Garden in East Boston, and the Fenway Victory Gardens.  From June to September, each garden will host an installation or project designed specifically for the site, along with special events inviting interaction among the creative pieces, the artist, and members of the community. The installations will support programs like story-telling events, community conversations, community dinners, live performances, and interactive play. TD Bank's

Ready Commitment will also make skill- and community-building programs at several other Trustees gardens possible this season. We’re sure one of these special gardens will become your new oasis. Check back here for program updates as the season progresses!
