🔨 The Hub 🔨

CSFR is about to put down some serious roots. After years of transience, including a formative 2018 in the Helen Hunt Campus (a shuttered school-turned-office building for local nonprofits), we’re beyond excited to deepen our relationship with the Hillside neighborhood as we move onto the end of Institute St. — a piece of land generously donated by the Legacy Institute for the purpose of developing a community food center!

What’s that, you ask? It’ll be a place where neighbors come together to eat, grow and connect with their food. Nothing’s finalized yet but the plan includes an events/workshop space, a four-season greenhouse, a community learning farm and a compost park.

Move over 7-Eleven — here comes the Hillside Food Hub!
