Home Our Programs CitySprouts


CitySprouts' mission is to develop, implement & maintain beautiful, resource-rich school gardens in collaboration with public school communities. Our program inspires teachers, students & families with a deep, hands-on connection to the food system, sustainable agriculture & the ecosystem. CitySprouts is hosting two full-time Commonwealth Corps members who are serving as Commonwealth Corps Middle School Coordinators, leading Out-of-School Time (OST) programs for youth ages 11-14 in Cambridge & Boston. Through their service, members are leading educators broadening programming at 6 schools with a focus on deepening youth voice and engagement, while further expanding family engagement plans with partner schools. In addition, they are leveraging the service of 250 volunteers throughout our network of 23 partner schools in order to engage in garden education and building projects, impacting 150 students.
