Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Get Your Belmont Garden Plot – Rock Meadow Community Garden

Tending The Garden PlotAs winter drags on it’s exciting to consider the prospect of spring and summer gardening.  Time’s a fleeting if you’re interested in reserving a community garden plot at Rock Meadow in Belmont, Massachusetts.  The $25 fee for the season and completed registration form are due by March 15th.

The 70 acre Rock Meadow Conservation Area is located in Belmont about one mile outside of Waverley Square, adjacent to Beaver Brook North Reservation.  The community garden plots at Rock Meadow were established in 1969 and plots now number 130.  Belmont originally had victory garden plots that dated from World War II on land now occupied by the high school on Concord Avenue.  Those plots were moved to Rock Meadow in 1969 after the town purchased the land from McLean Hospital.

Garden plots are not limited to Belmont residents though it is possible that residents will be given preference if demand exceeds availability.

This is a wonderful opportunity to grow your own food – or flowers – especially if you don’t have a suitable garden space at home.

    Hi,

    I read on the sign at the gardens that the deadline was April. Am I too late to sign up?

    Hi Susan ~ I think the March 15th date is 2009’s deadline. If you click on the Rock Meadow link above it mentions applying by the end of March. That link will give you more contact info too.

    Hi Nicole – The Rock Meadow link above will connect you to the info page about the community gardens in Belmont. I didn’t see anything there about the size but there is an email address if you want to contact them with questions.
