Come support Groundwork Somerville at our annual Local Roots Food and Music Festival on September 11th from 5pm-10pm at the Growing Center (22 Vinal Ave, Somerville in Union Square). This incredible fundraiser helps to sustain our green community efforts such as the Green Team youth jobs program! There will be several local musicians showcasing their talents: to name a few : Mark Santoro, Dylan Chace, Christian McNeill and The Redeemers, and DJ Marco Andre in his Somerville debut!
In addition to great music there will be several incredible and unique door prizes such as locally made syrup, Groundwork Somerville gear and a grand mystery prize donated by a local business! Also several other local organizations such as Somerville Local First and The Swapaholics will be there to showcase their own community and sustainability efforts. Somerville Local First will be putting on an activity to demonstrate the actual impact of buying locally. SLF will have visitors deposit the extra $25 that stays in our community from each $100 in local purchases into boxes representing local uses. This exercise will show what tremendous impact buying local can have and also give individuals the ability to speak about their priorities in our community. Groundwork Somerville will host various activities to get us thinking about our local impact!
Donations will be taken to support a non-profit organization in New York in dedication to the tragedy of September 11.
