As new offices within the City of Boston, the Office of Food Justice (OFJ) and GrowBoston: Office of Urban Agriculture want to ensure that we have the biggest impact we can on building food justice in Boston--in partnership with residents, community groups, food producers, and other governmental agencies. We have identified four major goals that will allow our work to have a bigger collective impact on the food system.

About Our Office

GrowBoston builds on the long-term work of the Mayor’s Office of Housing (MOH). MOH, through the Grassroots Program, has been supporting the development of. community gardens, urban farms, food forests, and other open spaces through land disposition and capital funding for more than 25 years.

GrowBoston will be working to increase community gardens, urban farms, and other food-growing spaces throughout Boston. We will support the implementation of innovative food production strategies, such as rooftop growing, vertical growing, and hydroponics.

We provide technical help to prospective and existing gardens and farms. Our team develops educational and other food production resources for gardeners, farmers, and residents. We partner with sister agencies to leverage public facilities to increase food production. We also coordinate with other City departments to make food production more accessible in Boston.
