Gardening the Community is a food justice organization in the Mason Square neighborhood of Springfield - engaged in youth development, urban agriculture and sustainable living. GTC works with youth to grow fruit and vegetables on vacant and abandoned lots. The food is shared with their families and also sold at the Mason Square Farmers Market, local restaurants, and bodegas. Youth receive a stipend and learn about principles of urban agriculture and urban sustainable living. They deliver all vegetables by bike, practice rain collection and water conservation, build soil health, and more. GTC also runs a CSA in their neighborhood - a collaboration with Next Barn Over farm.
