Introducing Our New Community Engagement Framework for the 2024 Season!

Community engagement is the heart of Pitney Meadows Community Farm, where learning thrives amidst the vibrant tapestry of our working farm, community gardens, and woodlands. As we gear up for an exciting 2024 season, we’re thrilled to unveil our refreshed community engagement framework, designed to foster connection, learning, and growth for everyone who visits us.


At Pitney Meadows, we believe that learning is not just about acquiring knowledge; it's about experiencing it firsthand, rooted in the rich soil of our living classroom. Our programs are built on the principle that learning is a collaborative journey, where each participant brings their unique perspective, enriching the collective experience for all.


Accessibility Matters

Before we delve into the exciting details of our new framework, we want to emphasize our commitment to accessibility. Through our Community Access Fund, we strive to make all our programs economically accessible, offering free programs and individual participation scholarships to ensure that everyone can join in the learning journey. You can support this fund by donating today.


Explore to Learn

Our youth and family programs, under the banner of Explore to Learn, invite kids and their families to immerse themselves in the wonders of nature and agriculture. Here, amidst the changing seasons and the rhythms of farm life, participants forge connections with the land and their food. Through hands-on activities and exploration, we aim to cultivate a community of care—for ourselves, for each other, and for the earth that sustains us. This program is under development for the 2024 season and program announcements will be coming soon!


Work to Learn

Join our Farm Team for Work to Learn Days—an opportunity to roll up your sleeves and dive into the stewardship of our shared resource. Whether you're a seasoned gardener or a novice, our Work to Learn Days offer a chance to learn alongside our farm team, exploring regenerative agriculture practices and the intricacies of biodiversity. It's more than just a day of work; it's a chance to contribute to your community farm while honing valuable skills that transcend the fields. Corporate groups are welcome as well!


Try and Learn

For those eager to learn or deepen their skills in a variety of activities, our Try and Learn workshops are for you! The Try and Learn Program will offer workshops in four main categories: Wellness, Gardening and Agriculture, Arts in the Garden, and Culinary Arts and Nutrition. Many of our classes will be taught and led by experts in the community to ensure that a diverse group of teachers and voices are present. Join our community gardeners for hands-on workshops, where you'll discover the secrets of plant cultivation, learn about local ecosystems, and explore wellness practices amidst the beauty of our landscape. Our first workshops are populating our events calendar now!


Join us as we cultivate connections, nurture growth, and sow the seeds of a more vibrant, resilient community.


We can't wait to see you on the farm!
