Frequently Asked Questions

How do I join a neighborhood garden?


If you are primarily looking for a place to grow for yourself, please email our UGROW Coordinator UGROW@recworcester.org who can review our existing garden list and connect you to the garden coordinators at sites that have availability. Learn more about neighborhood gardens here!




Can I volunteer with the UGROW network?


Yes! We are always recruiting folks who are willing to help us with tasks in our community gardens. Sign up here. If you want to see how you can help out at our School Gardens, email our School Gardens Manager at schoolgardens@recworcester.org to express interest.




I'm looking for help with my backyard garden.


While we support and encourage home growing, we are not currently able to provide material support for home gardens serving a single household. You can check out our Gardening Resource page for tips, tricks and helpful guides. For those interested in larger scale growing projects on your own property, please check out our Urban Agriculture Resource page.
