Join us for the Winters Farmers Market!

The Winter Farmers Market season continues! Due to increased demand of fresh, healthy produce all year long, we have added another Saturday per month to the market! 

The Groundwork Winter Farmers Market is at 50 Island Street, Lawrence, MA, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm, on select Saturdays of each month from now until the end of May. This is supported in part by Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare Foundation, Lawrence CommunityWorks, Rumbo, and with generous donations from supporters like you.
 
Upcoming Winter Farmers Market Dates:
| February 3 |  February 10 |  February 24 March 10 |  March 31 |
Earth Day / Comcast Cares Day Save the Date!

Please save the date in your calendars for our largest volunteer cleanup day of the year! On Saturday, April 21, 2018 join in with over a thousand volunteers for Earth Day / Comcast Cares Day here in Lawrence. Last  year across dozens of sites, volunteers cleaned parks and streets, built garden beds, and made the City of Lawrence clean, green, and beautiful! 

Volunteers make a difference in our community, and check out this video from last year to see their impact!

Sign up for CSA Spring Share!

Enjoy locally grown, farm-fresh produce every week - hand-picked, packed and delivered conveniently to Lawrence.  Go to Farmer Dave's to register! 
 
SNAP clients are able to use their benefits to purchase their CSA share, and just like at farmers markets, the SNAP CSA share purchase qualifies for the Healthy Incentives Program, putting dollars right back into a client's account. 
 
At GWL, we aim to make fresh, healthy food available to everyone in the community, so we established the Groundwork Share-a-Share™ fund to subsidize the cost of fresh food for individuals and families experiencing financial hardship. Make sure you sign up for the CSA, and donate to share this opportunity with a family that needs it.
Green Team Receives Amplify Grant!

We are excited to announce that we received an Amplify Youth Voices Grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council! The Amplify Youth Voices Grant supports "the creation of work by young people in the arts, sciences, or humanities that demonstrates the capacity they have to be a visible and audible part of developing safe and thriving communities throughout the Commonwealth." Green Team's proposal was written by two members, Priscila and Samantha, and the funds  will help  purchase art and promotional materials for a multimedia, end of year storytelling presentation.
