The Salem YMCA GreenSpace is a public garden run by the Salem YMCA. The Y hires local teens that work with volunteers to create and maintain this garden and school gardens across the city. Through the support of our community volunteers, the City of Salem, and generous donors, GreenSpace is able to provide free weekly produce to it’s neighbors.

The goal of the Greenspace is to provide a space that brings people together, educates, and helps to foster community.

Greenspace is located in an old abandoned batting cage in Palmer Cove Park in the Point neighborhood, behind the Saltonstall School. The team renovated the space building raised beds, a shed, a meeting room, and a greenhouse. The space still maintains the feel of its previous life as evidenced by twelve foot fences and home plate! Come down, check it out, volunteer your time, and get involved!
