Cultivate and Nest Offers Free ‘Families at the Nest’ Afternoon Program

HADLEY—Cultivate and Nest, a membership-based co-office space that incorporates a child care component, has created a free afternoon program, called Families at the Nest, which will now be offered monthly for families in the community.

The first program will be held Sunday, June 12 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Cultivate and Nest, 2 Bay Road in Suite 102.

Terra Missildine, founder of Cultivate and Nest, which opened in January, said the afternoon will offer activities for children of all ages as well as a time for parents to network and enjoy adult conversation. Refreshments will be offered.

“I wanted to create a new space for people to get together and build community,” Missildine said.

The program is free and open to the public and will be offered monthly on the second Sunday of every month. RSVPs are not required but are preferred by contacting Missildine at 413-345-2400 or

Cultivate and Nest is a membership-based co-office space that incorporates a child care component. Missildine currently has 24 members but is still accepting membership applications.

The cluster of offices is located on the first floor in the Hadley Crossing business park, with roughly 3,400 square feet dedicated to Cultivate and Nest members. Members pay in cost tiers that range from $100 to $600 per month, depending on amenities and level of office access.

Event and workshop space is also available for members and the community at large to host family friendly events.

The Nest—or kids’ space—at Cultivate and Nest is staffed by an early childhood care specialist from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., but access to office spaces is 24-7.
