La Finquita is the oldest Nuestras Raíces community garden. This is where the organization began, with a few community garden plots and dedicated community members who were looking to make a change in the community and pass on their agricultural knowledge to the younger generations. La Finquita is one of the only gardens that still has the founding members of Nuestras Raíces.
This garden has 32 family plots all budding with fresh vegetables and produce, and is currently working with the Providence Ministries and its youth group.
La Finquita is located on the corner of Cabot Street and S. East Street, behind Providence Ministries and Kate’s Kitchen in Holyoke, MA.
Stop by and say hi to the gardeners, learn some valuable agricultural knowledge and see one of the oldest community gardens in Massachusetts.
