Groundwork Somerville

Modeled after successful Groundwork organizations in the United Kingdom and an affiliate of Groundwork USA, a network of organizations established by the National Park Service, Groundwork Somerville is a community-based organization committed to “changing places and changing lives” through on-the-ground projects that transform local communities and empower residents.  The nonprofit runs a range of youth programs that provide environmental education, leadership development, and service opportunities, including its Green Team, a job program that enables area youth to develop tangible skills while working for positive social and environmental change.  Groundwork also runs Somerville’s first urban farm, which provides the healthy, fresh produce it donates to local food pantries and sells through its 8 mobile farmer’s markets.
