Stop by Adams Park on Saturday August 1st for the Roslindale Farmers’ Market event! BR+A+CE is ecstatic to bring The Big Hammock back after FIVE LONG YEARS. None of this could have been possible without the generous donations and supporters backing up the project of the original Big Hammock back in 2010. We will be selling Big Hammock merchandise @ Adams Park  to help fundraise for this project and the NEXT project- our Tilt-Down Fence! So be sure to stop by and check out our cool new designs, or click our merchandise and donation links to the right to be a contributor. (:

*Roslindale Village Main Street will be celebrating their 30th Anniversary on August 8th, with the guest appearance of Mayor Marty Walsh. Stay tuned for more events!
