On July 30th, Somerville will down for the ribbon cutting of the South Street Farm. The South Street Farm is located at 100 South Street in Somerville, MA. There, the ribbon cutting will be held as we celebrate the long awaited completion of the Eco-Shed. It will feature a rainwater harvesting roof and pump system, a bicycle powered water pump, green walls, as well as storage and display space. The Eco-Shed was worked hard on by a diligent group of Prospect Hill Academy students and volunteers, like Josh Briggs, who is the Project Manager, Construction Supervisor, and designer of the rain water harvesting system and bike pump. The ribbon cutting will begin at 9:15 AM on July 30th. Major Joseph Curtatone will come out to show his support and the Green Team will lead tours.
The Eco-Shed is funded by the City of Somerville as part of the Mayor’s Urban Agriculture. To learn more about the event and the Eco-Shed, click here.
