As of yesterday, spring has officially sprung. We’re here to herb your enthusiasm by sharing how you can get involved with a community garden to cultivate your green thumb.

The Trustees of Reservations manages 56 gardens across eight neighborhoods in Boston, including Dorchester, East Boston, Fenway, Jamaica Plain, Roxbury, Mattapan, Mission Hill + the South End.

If you have the thyme, here are some facts about our city’s biggest community garden program.
