Salem YMCA GreenSpace
HEALTHY, HAPPY COMMUNITY
The Salem Y GreenSpace is a public garden run by Salem teens and community volunteers with the support of the Salem YMCA, the City of Salem, and other generous donors. The GreenSpace provides healthy produce to our neighbors and hosts community events.
Unlike most community gardens, there is no membership fee and the beds aren’t designated to individuals; instead our teens and volunteers maintain the garden as a group and the produce grown is given to the participants and to the community at no charge. Our goal is to provide a space that brings people together, educates, and helps to foster community.
We are located in an old abandoned batting cage in Palmer Cove Park in the Point neighborhood, behind Saltonstall School. We renovated the space building raised beds, a shed, a meeting room, and a greenhouse, but the space still maintains the feel of its previous life as evidenced by twelve foot fences and home plate!
Come down, check us out, volunteer your time.
