On May 31, 2017, The Learning Zone After-School Program children at our Salem Street location started the growing season at the North Common Village Community Garden. Program Manager, Delmis Sierra assisted the children in choosing what produce they would like to cultivate and many of the children will be able to observe the process from planting to harvest as they transition into attending our Youth Summer Activities Program during the months of July and August. The children have chosen to grow tomatoes, green peppers, green beans, sweet potatoes, watermelon, mint and basil.

We will be sure to post additional pictures on our social media pages throughout the growing season!

Parents interested in registering their children for the Youth Summer Activities Program may complete the registration form and deliver to Michelle Dinan, Family Self Sufficiency Director, at the Executive Office at 350 Moody Street, or register on site beginning July 11th at George Flanagan, 580 Chelmsford Street, or North Common Village, 21 Salem Street.
