We Need Your Input!

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires that Lawrence update its Open Space and Recreation Plan every seven years in order to be eligible for potentially millions in state funding. This short and confidential survey is the first step in that update. It is intended to actively involve YOU, as part of the community, in shaping open space and recreation priorities, planning, and goals.  We want input from all who live, work, or play in Lawrence, especially those who care about the future of Lawrence's Open Spaces.

Registration for Spring CSA Open!
 
Enjoy locally grown, farm-fresh produce every week - hand-picked, packed and delivered conveniently to Lawrence. Go to Farmer Dave's to register!

At GWL, we aim to make fresh, healthy food available to everyone in the community, so we established a fund  Groundwork Share-a-Share™  to subsidize the cost of fresh food for individuals and families experiencing financial hardship. Make sure you sign up for this year's CSA, and donate to share this opportunity with a family that needs it.
