Farm-Based Wellness

Promoting Health and Community Development through Urban Agriculture

New Haven Farms’ nonprofit charitable mission is to promote health and community development through urban agriculture. We transform vacant, contaminated urban land into spaces with fresh organic vegetables, fruits, and flowers. Our highly skilled Farm Manager and 45-strong volunteer corps cultivate 8 urban farms, and our harvest is made accessible to low-income families who struggle with diet-related chronic diseases and food insecurity.

Farm members receive produce baskets combined with farm education, cooking demonstrations, and nutrition education on a weekly basis. We conduct community-based participatory research to measure the impact that our Farm-Based Wellness Programs have on our members’ quality of life.
