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.

Community Gardens In Cambridge

Community Gardening in CambridgeWinter’s coming to an end and soon it will be time to think about gardening. Perhaps you’ve been dreaming about the vegetables you could grow. Or maybe you hope to fill your home with flowers that don’t come from the store. 

Where Can I Find a Community Garden?

If you live in Cambridge, MA and don’t have a garden plot to call your own – don’ t despair.  Cambridge has thirteen community gardens spread across the city and preference is given to those who don’t have access to land for gardening.  There does seem to be more demand than available plots, however, and a  lottery system is used to assign plots to prospective gardeners.

    I’d like to start composting and I live close to a community garden but don’t have a plot. Is it possible to drop off compost matter there?

    Hi Katie,

    Your best bet would be to call or email Jennifer Wright at the Cambridge Conservation Commission. That’s the City dept. that oversees the community gardening program. The number there is 617-349-4680 or email is [email protected]. Alternatively, the DPW facility at 147 Hampshire Street is now accepting material for compost. And they’ve got a book swap too – my favorite reason for going there.

    My husband and I would like to get a plot in the East Cambridge Community Garden. We live on Porter Street and just lost our back yard this year because our landlord is renovating the house behind ours. How can we reserve a spot?
