I'm getting no bites on community gardens, however you may want to call up these folks to see if they have any leads:
Waltham Parks & Recreation
314 Totten Pond Road, Waltham

Prospect Hill Park offers 254 acres of beautiful, natural woodlands for hiking and picnicking. Waltham’s park system also includes more than 20 parks and playgrounds throughout the city, featuring tennis, baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, and more. Call for a listing of programs and facilities
Waltham Riverwalk
Metropolitan District Commission

Scenic 1.5 trail through historic Waltham on the banks of the Charles River. Hiking, biking, rollerblading, fishing, and picnicking. Walking tours on request.
I visited the gardens here as a teenager ( during the administration of Millard Fillmore .) You may want to poke around here and talk to folks.
Lyman Estate
185 Lyman Street, Waltham

Also called The Vale, the Lyman Estate was built in 1793 by wealthy Boston merchant Theodore Lyman. The house is open for tours by appointment. Admission charged. Surrounding 30-acre English-style gardens are a year-round delight. Greenhouses include the Grape House, built in 1804 to raise exotic fruits, the Camellia House, built in 1820, and a structure from the 1930s. Plants sold year-round. Open Monday -Saturday, 9 am - 4 pm. Greenhouse tours by appointment. Operated by the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities
You undoubtedly know the nice folks at Boston's Paul Ward Beecher community garden:
and the highly experienced and heroic Boston Garden Futures people:
Should you be energetic crazy enough to want to start a community garden, and can find enough like minded people to work with you) the information on the American Community Gardening Association website is priceless:
Not exactly priceless...
Once you've gotten established, you'll really want to take advantage of the informational and karmic benefits of ACGA membership.
Happy  gardening!
