I’m always excited to learn about new small farms and the work they do with their local communities. Recently I was introduced to Waltham Fields Community Farm (WFCF) and have been very impressed with their work.
WFCF is a non-profit farming organization which grows organic vegetables on 15 acres of land just outside of Boston. They serve their community in an impressive number of ways, including offering access to affordable fresh vegetables to those in need, distributing to local public schools and donating to emergency feeding and nutrition centers. They also offer education for children and adults as well as a formal Farmer Training program.
For those who just like to eat fresh and healthy vegetables, WCFC also has a 20-week summer share program (CSA) with pickups at the farm. For those who like to lend a hand, they even have a volunteer program.
I was so impressed with the work that WFCF does that I happily donated some of my vegetable block print reproductions for a fundraiser being held on Saturday, April 14. It will be at the Museum of Industry, which sounds very cool and I wish I could be there in person!
WFCF is looking for more donations for their fundraiser. If you have something you could donate, please consider them! If you’re in the area and would like to participate in their CSA program, they have 50 shares on sale to the public starting today. See their website for more details.
