The Heart of the Vita Health & Wellness District

Volunteering at Fairgate Farm is a great experience!

Work with other great people, learn a lot, get fresh air and take home just-picked fruit and vegetables – plus contribute to the health and wellbeing of our community.

About Fairgate Farm

Fairgate Farm – volunteer-powered, thriving and socially responsible – is at the heart of the Vita Health & Wellness District, which is focused on reducing health disparities.

We supply healthy, safe and locally grown fruit and vegetables to our community and nonprofit agencies. We offer a busy calendar of special events, including nutrition, cooking and gardening education programs throughout the spring and summer.
