A long standing tradition (program) at the Growing Center, Art in the Garden is a summer program that allows a group of up to 30 children to play and learn in a beautiful natural space while engaging their creative/artistic side.
Somerville is home to a multitude of talented musicians with incredibly varied repertories. There are few affordable public places, however, in which they can perform. The Growing Center’s outdoor space provides an amazing setting for our diverse local musical talents to perform to supportive and receptive crowds.
Only New York has more artists per capita than Somerville. Each year, several artists use the Growing Center as an exhibition space for their pieces or installations. The natural surroundings make the perfect setting for many pieces of local art. The Growing Center is also often a stop during Somerville Open Studios.
On the night of each full moon, interested folks are invited to walk the Growing Center’s labyrinth as a meditative way to connect with the earth and the cycles of the moon.
