Grow Food Northampton delivers educational and food access programs and supports successful farming and gardening at our community farm.
DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT!
An anonymous donor will match every contribution up to $20,000 now through December 31st, 2013.
Grow Food Northampton relies 100% on community financial support to develop the Northampton Community Farm and share its many benefits - nutritious food, fertile garden plots, and farm education programs - with thousands of diverse citizens.
Thank you for giving generously!
In 2010, citizens created Grow Food Northampton to safeguard a large tract of prime, in-town farmland for sustainable community agriculture. Months later, and with more than 1,400 contributions, GFN bought 121 acres of permanently preserved farmland and created the Northampton Community Farm.
Today, ours is the largest community farm in Massachusetts, hosting four successful farm businesses and a vibrant community garden, and growing a full menu of vegetables, fruit, herbs, grain, and livestock. The Northampton Community Farm feeds thousands of community members, engages more than 500 children in farm-based learning and has donated thousands of pounds of food toward local hunger relief.
In 2011, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health presented Grow Food Northampton with its Community Transformation Award. GFN consults nationally with citizen groups hoping to replicate our success.
