Connecting Community

FRESH creates opportunities for people of all ages and circumstances to develop a deeper relationship with one another and with their environment. 
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

During the 2020 growing season, we collaborated with Sprout Garden at Connecticut College to distribute FRESH NL food harvested from our sites to 33 families each week as a part of CSA. Our usual farmer’s market style had to change with the pandemic but we still were able to give fresh food to families in New London!

Garlic Planting Party

Our first community event since the COVID-19 pandemic! It was great to be able to have people at the garden again to help us plant garlic at our Mercer St and Ledyard St gardens. We used a new sign up system to make sure that we could be safe while gardening.
