Our Urban Farm and Education Center includes a large unheated greenhouse, a pavilion that we use as an outdoor classroom and event space, a brick oven, community garden beds, snack beds and fruit trees!
The school gardens at Winthrop Elementary provide hands on learning to students and fresh food to staff, families and kids! The school has a science and technology focus, so the heated greenhouse is a living laboratory for the young people!
These garden plots are tended by residents of the 100 unit public housing development for elderly and disabled community members. FRESH checks in on these beds, and the gardeners and helps out with soil, advice and end of the season cleanup!
This dramatic terraced property belongs to friends and collaborators of FRESH New London. They imagine beehives, rainwater catchment, solar power generation, fruit trees and FRESH grown crops. We began partnering with them in 2019, so watch this space for the dream to slowly become a reality!
