Dudley Greenhouse 10,000 sq ft Commercial Greenhouse Completed 2005 Total Development Cost $1.5 Million
Developer: Mass Highway
In 2004, DNI acquired the site of the abandoned Brook Avenue Garage from Dudley Neighbors Inc. After years underneath an automotive garage, the soil at the site was contaminated and unsuitable for housing. As a result, DNI built a greenhouse to facilitate local food production and fulfill the needs of the neighborhood and the community. In 2010, we partnered with The Food Project to realize this goal.
The Dudley Greenhouse is a 10,000-square-foot operational greenhouse located on Brook Avenue in Roxbury that functions as a community space and year-round learning center for local residents and gardeners. Owned by Dudley Neighbors Inc. and leased to The Food Project (TFP), the greenhouse represents a true partnership to improve the health and community life of the neighborhood.
