The Mission of Watertown Community Gardens is to promote community gardens and gardening in Watertown, Massachusetts with the goal of advancing healthy eating environmental stewardship, and community connections through gardening.
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.
The past year challenged us in many ways as individuals and as an organization. With the COVID-19 crisis, we were not able to meet in person through much of 2020. If you would like to "meet" fellow WCG members and members of the board, vote on proposals, and hear a guest speaker, please join us on Zoom for our Annual Membership Meeting on Thursday, February 11, 2021: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88502406513?pwd=WlZlcWRRRkZiZmNYM09Jb1JKSzlPUT09.
