Welcome

FRESH New London builds momentum for food system change through local agriculture and youth empowerment. We use food to connect the community, encourage stewardship, inspire leadership, and incite change.

Saturdays at the FRESH Garden

At FRESH, we grow food with the community, for the community!
Our Saturday volunteer days connect you with the land to learn and grow. Whether you are an expert, or not, you’ll share and learn about urban growing, interact with new people from our beautiful community, and you will love your work. We provide volunteers with free snacks and drinks. Students and community members can earn service hours.

Come and work with us, and help us to build a better (more sustainable, more just and more beautiful) food system! Click here to sign up or just come by!

Every Saturday, rain or shine, between 9am and 1pm at our community garden at the corner of William and Mercer Streets.

 Together we can build and sustain a healthy and just food system; we will exercise our collective power to establish community food security in Connecticut, and take part in the global movement for food justice.
