Farms & Community Gardens

Whether it's our six vibrant working farms or 56 community gardens across eight Boston neighborhoods, The Trustees understands local food and farming matters. That's why our farms have everything from cooking classes to Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs. Our community gardens are sources of neighborhood pride that turn neighbors into friends, strengthen family bonds and traditions, and inspire joy in the shared work of growing fresh, healthy, and delicious food.
