Well spring is upon us, that is for sure! We have so many exciting events this season. We just successfully completed our 5th annual SomerGreen Festival, in partnership with the City of Somerville, our first ever Boston Tree Party apple tree planting, our river clean-up with the Mystic River Watershed Association and the Friends of the Mystic River, a garden raising, and a bike drive with Bikes Not Bombs. And that was just on ONE day! So thank you to everyone who has participated so far, and welcome to all our new partners who are about to embark upon greening initiatives with Groundwork Somerville. Read on to find out about some upcoming events this spring.
Every day I question if we are doing the right thing to have so many events - yes, it makes sense to work collaboratively to do clean-ups and bike drives, and youth-led gardens. But are we being noticed for the work that we do? As an Executive Director, I constantly analyze this. And you know what? We finally did get noticed! Yes folks - THE White House Blog did a post about Groundwork Somerville! Check it out here, and make sure to email the White House and let them know that you support GWS. A Major thank you to our partners at GlobalGiving - the White House found us through their website.
Thank you for all of your support and please keep giving!
Outgoing Executive Director
