Gardening the Community 2006

Students from Mount Holyoke's Center for the Environment helped the Springfield Urban Agriculture Project create a new home for its Gardening the Community (GTC) program. GTC youth and staff, and many local volunteers, broke ground on Saturday, October 28, at 50 Lebanon Street in Springfield, Massachusetts. The new garden site--formerly located on Central Street in Springfield--is owned by Mitchell Machine, a third-generation family business started in the 1920s.
