The Newtown Food Pantry Garden was started with the simple, yet ambitious goal of providing fresh grown local food to our friends and neighbors who are served by Newtown Connecticut’s Food Pantry. As any gardener knows well, there are few better ways to connect with the Earth than getting some of it under your fingernails. And there are few better ways to connect with our humanity than helping our fellow humans. The Newtown Food Pantry Garden brings together both ideas.
Our community garden, on the Fairfield Hills campus near the Mile Hill gate, is a private space made up of many individually-managed plots with generous support from the Newtown Department of Parks & Recreation. To learn more, visit the rest of this web site…or, even better, visit our Garden.
