Our full-sun, naturally-warmed raised beds are thriving. These 4’x12′ newly rebuilt beds are rented to local gardeners. All farming follows organic principals. This year our gardeners planted a variety of spring vegetables (snow peas, spinach, lettuce) followed by a robust summer crop of heirloom tomatoes (more than 10 varieties), Swiss chard, assorted peppers, beans, eggplant, and herbs.
Inclusivity Gardens 2023.
We are pleased to be the recipient of a generous grant for community gardens restoration and an inclusivity gardens program from the Sestero Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. This grant money helped bring diversity in farming to Wind Hill by dedicating some of the raised beds to growing and using ethnic specialties.
Thank you for all your support
Farm Fresh Kids is an educational summer program for kids hosted at the farm!
This program is designed to introduce children to the fundamentals of farming while offering a fun and educational outdoor adventure.
Throughout the summer, we offer three sessions, with each session meeting three times a week for two hours each day. Each day at Farm Fresh Kids begins with engaging lessons about the environment and food. We use plants for demonstrations and encourage everyone to share their thoughts and knowledge. After the lesson, the kids are able to participate in fun farm themed activities! This can range from planting seedlings to take home, drawing garden signs, and exciting hikes that explore Wind Hill’s Fields and Longo Open Space Fields.
Farm Fresh Kids also emphasizes the importance of healthy living and locally sourced foods. The kids get the chance to create delicious, nutritious snacks daily using produce harvested directly from our farm. A fan favorite includes our delectable salsa made with tomatoes and cucumbers grown in our hoop house. This program instills an appreciation for nature, promotes healthy eating habits, and creates a sense of responsibility towards the environment. It is the perfect mix of education, adventure, and fun.
