Our group was founded in 2010 through a confluence of interests and partnerships including Church of the Good Shepherd, Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice, & the Environment, Representative Jon Hecht, Mount Auburn Cemetery, Watertown Housing Authority, and dedicated Watertown residents. We incorporated in 2011, and currently operate two organic community gardens, support a summer youth garden crew, and publish a monthly newsletter. We offer all Watertown gardeners a community connection via our workshops on cooking and canning, our harvest potluck called the Real Meal, and many volunteer opportunities.

Our mission is to promote community gardens and gardening in Watertown, Massachusetts with the goal of advancing healthy eating environmental stewardship, and community connections through gardening. WCG...supporting community gardens in Watertown since 2011
