The projects and programs of Waltham Fields Community Farm (WFCF) are inspired by our mission, one that integrates hunger relief, education and the promotion of community farms.
WFCF's community is defined by our location in anurban environment, members who participate in our programs, and theextended network of individuals and groups who support our mission andgoals. From WFCF's inception, members and volunteers have formed thecore of this community.
The promotion of community farms is central to our mission.
Ourfarm, supports local hunger relief efforts by providing fresh produceto local food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. Since itsgermination in the fertile minds of an idealistic crew of gleaners in1995, WFCF has donated over 150,000 pounds of produce.
We seek to reconnect people with the knowledge of how food isproduced. Children and adults learn about plants, food production andfarming when they come to WFCF to work in the fields and greenhouse.Guided by experienced staff, they sow seeds, transplant seedlings, weedand harvest crops. Educational opportunities include a number of paidand unpaid agricultural internships for adults interested in farmingand farmland preservation.
