[Slack Group for Westgate Community]
We have a slack workspace for the communication platform for westgate community.
Slack is a flexible communication tool, and in the long term the idea is that this will replace much of the emails sent in the Westgate community.

If you have not used slack before, here are some helpful videos to get you started: https://slack.com/resources/slack-101

[New and Expecting Parents Group]
This is for moms, dads, working parents, stay at home parents, and other caregivers. Usually meet on Wednesday mornings at 11am in the Westgate basement lounge. The group is sponsored by MIT Spouses and Partners Connect.
Anyone is welcome; however the events are targeted to new parents or soon-to-be parents. Most parents who attend have kids under 2. There are speakers, play dates, cooking classes, outings, and many other activities together.
Community Gardening at Westgate happens through individual plot gardening (located near the Westgate highrise shuttle stop) and through community garden planting (located between lowrise buildings C&D). Together, these efforts are coordinated by volunteer residents who support “growing” and healthy eating at Westgate. We encourage anyone interested to sign up to help water the community garden on the watering.
