Equity Residential is pleased to have developed space for community gardens at two of our Cambridge, MA communities—Lofts at Kendall Square and Third Square. And, residents are thrilled!  Residents sign up for designated areas of the garden, tend to plants, and enjoy “fruits” of their labor.   Gardening allows residents and the broader community to experience the outdoors, improve air quality and grow healthy and fresh food. 

Given the popularity of these gardens, we are evaluating the potential to expand community gardens to more communities.


“Just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying our garden. It’s been such a nice distraction to go outside and putter around in the dirt each day. I love being able to run downstairs for some fresh herbs when I’m cooking. We also polished off our first batch of homemade pickles! It’s definitely helped to maintain my sanity while everyone is stuck at home. Thank you.”
