Green Team over for the summer!

Green Team
Green Team

Well folks, it's true - the Green Team is over for the summer! After an amazing seven weeks of biking around the city, visiting farms, designing a new garden, harvesting and maintaining four garden spaces, and organizing an amazing youth summit, we are done!

The good news is that the fall Green Team begins in just a few weeks! You'll be able to see us STILL riding bikes, assisting Groundwork Lawrence at their Spicket River Clean-up (September 11, Lawrence MA), visiting Groundwork Springfield for a service day, and hosting a series of educational energy efficiency fairs!

We can't wait to get going again and appreciate all of the support you've been able to give us over the past year.

Thanks!

Our newly revamped Green Team program starts on Tuesday!

We are so excited to be able to bring on 18 (yes, that's right 18!) high school students this summer who will focus on three topics: Urban Agriculture, Sustainable Landscaping and Community Planning

Each team is also staffed with a Supervisor and a young Assistant Supervisor (2 of the 3 are past Green Team members!).

Watch out for the bikes, green t-shirts and smiling faces as you are walking through Somerville this summer.

We are also starting our FIRST EVER Mystic River Green Team, supervised by our past National Park Preserver job training team member Joey Baldassari. Watch out for the BRIGHT ORANGE t-shirts on the river as you drive by all summer.
