Framingham Food Forest Fellowship

No one ever waters a forest. Why? Because a forest is a self-sustaining ecosystem. Our fellowship asks, “How can we use the same ecological principles to reduce maintenance in our own gardens and create abundance?”  Our first demonstration permaculture food forest was installed in 2016 at Open Spirit, 39 Edwards St., Framingham.  The Community Gardens Working Group is still taking the lessons of permaculture into its work in Framingham.

Seed Lending Library

In collaboration with the Framingham Public Library, the Seed Lending Library makes seeds freely available to library patrons. Learn more.

Around Town

Community Garden at Methodist Church

First United Methodist Church, 360 Water St
You can have your own small plot, or help the community farm by sending an email to Diana (Dee) Palmer at or calling 508-904-0506. It has been requested that gardeners donate 10% of their produce to Daniel’s Table through the church.

Grounds Around Town

Participating businesses and organizations put aside used coffee grounds and make them available to the public.  People can then use this valuable nutrient for their gardens, yards and compost systems. For more information on how it works and how to be involved, see these attachments: Grounds Around Town, How does it work?, and What is so great about used coffee grounds?. (This project is currently not active –2021.)
