Welcome to the Harvard Community Garden! We are a community space in Harvard Square that welcomes everyone!

In the Spring of 2010, the Center for Health and the Global Environment, working closely with Harvard University Hospitality and Dining Services, Harvard's Office of Sustainability and invested students, implemented a raised bed garden on the Cambridge campus at 27 Holyoke Street in the heart of Harvard Square.
The garden includes a mix of raised beds for growing food, perennial borders, patio space for classes and events, and open green space. Pathways and tall garden beds, built with guidance from University Disability Services, are fully accessible to those with special needs. In a space that is both beautiful and productive, the Harvard garden brings together members of the community to raise awareness about the critical role that food plays in our environment and our health. The Garden acts as beacon for urban sustainable gardening practices.
The Harvard Community Garden is an ongoing collaboration managed by the Center for Health and the Global Environment at the Harvard Medical School, working closely with students, faculty, and administrators at Harvard University, including the Harvard Community garden student group, the Food Literacy Project of Harvard University Dining Services, the Office for Sustainability, Landscape Services, the Graduate School of Design and the Faculty of Arts & Sciences. The garden is staffed during the summer by two full-time undergraduate interns, and during the academic term by the student group.
