Why do we work with a plant ally? How does one choose? What does it mean to have a plant ally? What kinds of things does one do with a plant ally? You don’t need to know plants or herbal medicine to participate - just bring your curiosity, your willingness to share with others and be ready to choose and make a commitment to your plant ally. Please bring a blank journal or notebook and a pen. Pre-registration is required and this workshop will be capped at 15 participants. Register by contacting Bret Beattie at (413) 663-7588 or [email protected].

Need a gift for a loved one? How about some beautiful paintings from a local artist? UNO's Community Art Wall has recently been host to the amazing artwork of lifelong North Adams native Cassandra Williams. Cassandra discovered her love for art when taking an art class in the 6th grade at Silvio Conte Middle School. After putting her passion aside to raise her family, she got the opportunity to get reacquainted with her love of painting 4 years ago. She now is able to put all of her time and focus into creating beautiful pieces of work driven by pure raw emotion.

Stop by UNO during our open hours, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 to noon and Friday from noon to 4 to get a look at this gorgeous local artistry, and maybe even take home a piece!

Our Story

In 2015, the UNO Community Center was opened with the help of the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition to serve as a gathering place for residents in the UNO neighborhood, which consists of River, Temple, School, Williams, Cady, Veazie, North, Bracewell, Hall, Liberty, North Holden, Chase, Houghton and parts of Eagle streets in North Adams. Now every month, with the support of UNO residents and local community organizations, the center hosts dozens of events on diverse topics like youth programming, music lessons, playgroups, cooking & nutrition classes, educational support programming, health care resources, community gardens and other pro-social programming. In the summer of 2018, the UNO Park opened right outside the center, featuring bocce and basketball courts, handicap accessible seating, community gardens and more.

The UNO Community Center aims to be a second home for all residents of the United Neighborhood Organization; a place where neighbors can build positive relationships with one another, teach others their talents, learn new skills, and work together to ensure that UNO is a vibrant, caring and safe place to live. So don't be a stranger; come on in and check us out!
