GROWING FOOD

FRESH reclaims urban spaces as farms and gardens. We test soil and build raised beds. Growing food in the city offsets the community's basic needs while inspiring them to grow their own.

Visit each of our community gardens to learn more!

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!

FRESH began redeveloping this quarter-acre city park as a community garden and green space in 2017. Now, it boasts fruit trees, berry bushes, community garden beds and a play area. 

This pocket park is owned by the Community Land Trust. We built 16 garden beds here in 2019, erected a small three-season green house and put in snack beds. There is space for you to garden here too. 

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!
