Community Supported Agriculture

Gardening the Community (GTC) is a youth-led food justice and urban agriculture organization based in Springfield. We grow organic fruits and vegetables on empty lots and organize for a healthy and equitable local food system. We sell at our Hancock Street farm stand and the Mason Square Farmers’ Market, and run an affordable CSA program called GTC EATS! We grow community, youth leadership, activism, and just food.

Peach update

There are no peaches for harvest in Massachusetts this year — an unfortunate casualty of increasingly variable weather fueled by climate change. We are keeping the guide updated with information about other fruit that is available, along with farms that are sourcing peaches from other parts of the region.
