Seeking Donations to Save Organic Farm

Seeking Donations to Save Organic Farm

Urban Oaks Organic Farm is an inner city farm in New Britain located on three and a half acres. The farm’s mission is to provide fresh organic foods to meet the needs of neighbors. After a wonderful 15-year relationship with a generous landlord, the land will be put up for sale next spring.

The only hope to save the certified organic farm is for the nonprofit to buy the land. This will require donations, as the farm has put all proceeds from sales back into operations. In the past, grant money and donations have been used, but the hope has been to become financially sustainable within the next five years.

The farm has been nurtured using organic practices for more than 15 years to create a fertile, nutrient-rich soil. There are seven on-site greenhouses, a year-round on-site farmers' market, a mobile market that visits neighborhood sites in addition to a variety of educational programs offered at local public schools.

Donations to this valuable non-profit organization can be made at GoFundMe.com/UrbanOaks. Tax-exempt donations should be mailed to Urban Oaks HRA, 225 Oak Street, New Britain, CT 06051.

Urban Oaks Farm is located at 207 Oak Street in New Britain. For more information, call 860-223-6200 or visit UrbanOaks.org.
