Rollie’s Farm is a 20-acre productive landscape in Lowell, Massachusetts that has long provided Christmas trees and produce to the community. Mass Audubon, Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust, and Mill City Grows have partnered to protect Rollie’s Farm. The vision is to establish an urban wildlife sanctuary, farm, and education center for the community of Lowell.
The partnership enlisted Agency along with architecture partner Marie Sorensen of Sorensen Partners to develop a framework plan to articulate this vision with design and translate it into tangible actions. The process will include community ‘Listening Sessions’ throughout the process to understand how we can connect the Lowell community to nature. Engagement is underway and will run through the summer with the plan scheduled to conclude in September of 2022.
