Malden residents now have the opportunity to adopt a planting bed for just $25 per year! Gardeners will provide their own plants or seeds and water will be supplied by the City.
Ward 5 City Councillor, Barbara Murphy initiated this project which was built by volunteers and Bike to the Sea members under the direction of Clay Larsen, project manager for Groundwork Somerville. Mayor Christenson’s office provided leadership, grant-writing support and outreach. Funding was obtained from several sources including a federal community development block grant obtained by the Malden Redevelopment Authority and private donations from Keurig, Inc. and the non-profit organization Seeds of Change.
