GROUP OPPORTUNITIES
  • Newton Community Farm is a small, working farm. While we welcome group visits from various kinds of organizations, these visits require staff time to coordinate, organize and run.
  • To cover the cost of the visit and ensure a high quality experience, we offer a fee-based educational program for groups wishing to come to the farm.
  • If your group is interested in visiting Newton Community Farm, please contact our Education and Outreach Director at education@newtoncommunityfarm.org for more information.
