The process of creating the Somerville ArtFarm is well under way! A public meeting held on December 14th gave updates on the final program and next steps for the project.
ArtFarm embodies the intersection between art, sustainability, and community. As part of the project team led by over,under, Bruner/Cott is working on Phase One of the project, the design and construction of initial site improvements. These include building a greenhouse and community garden beds, depaving work, ADA upgrades, and green infrastructure. Phase 2 (coming Summer 2018) adds the ArtBarn, a versatile community space for performance, display, eating, moving, and gathering. Roof-mounted solar panels, soil remediation, and strategic planting will also make the site a hub of “greenovation” for the City of Somerville.
