About

Gaining Ground grows organic produce and gives it all away to those experiencing food insecurity. We do this work with the help of volunteers of all ages and abilities, who work and learn in our fields. We envision a future where everyone has equitable access to healthy, sustainably grown produce.

Experience the joy and wonder of growing vegetables, fruit, flowers, herbs, honey and maple syrup while learning no-till, organic farming methods! Our volunteers work hand-in-hand with our farmers from April through late-October, mornings and afternoons on most weekdays and Saturdays. Everything we grow is donated to food pantries and meal programs in Boston, Lowell, and the Metrowest region.

Educational Activities

Create the Change® partners with nonprofit organizations that we believe offer age-appropriate service opportunities for youth and families. All of our partners sign a collaboration agreement promising to provide age-appropriate activities in a safe environment. 

 

Create the Change® does not run, host, or facilitate the service opportunities seen here, nor are we responsible in any way for the management (financial or otherwise) of the organizations we feature.

 

Always be sure to do your own research on the nonprofit organization and service opportunities available to make sure it's a good fit for you before getting started. You may find the organization's contact information on their profiles.
