Swampscott Fire Department

The Swampscott Fire Department is proud to share the talents of our members through this work. The fire-related display is meant to engage the community in our daily firefighting and prevention.


SHS Discovery Point Postgraduate Program

The Discovery Point Program is for young adults, ages 18 to 22, with disabilities and diverse learning styles. This program focuses on helping young adults discover and develop their individual strengths and interests while preparing them for an independent and fulfilling life in the community.

Discovery Point Students and interns participate in designing, creating, and selling handmade items at local farmers and craft markets to fundraise for community-based learning opportunities. Our artists spend time exploring leisure and hobby activities as well as career opportunities through the design, creation, and sales process of the Discovery Store. Recently sold items have been wooden jack-o-lanterns, holiday ornaments, greeting cards, customized pens and tumblers, vinyl stickers, upcycled crayons, and much more.


Sierra Munoz | Gardener

Seaside Cooperative Garden

A community garden of raised beds with fresh produce and native plants.

The members of the garden are a diverse group, ranging from seniors with over 40 years of gardening experience to young families with children who have never touched a shovel before.

Come and visit us at the Garden Art Walk to see what is growing and to make art cards by stamping veggies and plants!
