Homestead Community Farm, inspired by the Camphill communities, is a small non-profit organization based in Western Massachusetts committed to creating farming opportunities for adults with autism and other developmental disabilities.
Help HCF Fund Phase Two!!!
Homestead Community Farm (HCF) had a wonderfully productive summer! Thanks to our generous donors, we were able to hire a part time farmer, install a large, strong fence to keep the critters out and maintain a beautiful veggie garden. Every day, farmhands and a job coach from Prospect Meadow Farm came to work at the farm. Their efforts produced a bountiful crop of summer squash, peppers, tomatoes, greens, and herbs. This produce contributed to Prospect Meadow Farm’s vegetable shares and provided HCF with income for our ongoing projects.
We still need your help to make Homestead Community Farm continue to thrive and grow! Phase Two of our fundraising plan is to pay our farmer through early winter, plant perennials that will contain our marshy borders and purchase supplies for our new greenhouse which is being constructed next spring. Please make a donation* of any size to Homestead Community Farm and help us meet our Phase Two goals. Thank you!
