Massachusetts’s Regional Environmental Council (REC)
Project Title: Urban Garden Resources of Worcester (UGROW)
Project Description: Through UGROW, we at REC support a network of 60 gardens. Twenty of these are at Worcester public schools, involving more than 2,000 students and 40 teachers. We provide free soil testing, compost delivery, workshops, training, technical support, and volunteer recruitment. But more than anything, UGROW is working to create a sense of community around Worcester that centers on sustainable food production.
