About New Haven Farms: New Haven Farms’ mission is to promote health and community development through urban agriculture. We transform vacant, urban land into vibrant and productive organic farms. Our Farm Manager and volunteer corps cultivate seven urban farms, and our harvest is made accessible to low-income families who struggle with diet-related chronic diseases and food insecurity. Our signature program, the Farm-Based Wellness Program, provides hands-on cooking demonstrations, nutrition education, therapeutic gardening, and a basket of fresh produce to families referred by their primary care physicians. Program participants struggle with the double burden of food insecurity and risk factors for chronic diet related illness. For more information about New Haven Farms, visit newhavenfarms.org.
