About Fairgate Farm
Fairgate Farm is a volunteer-driven urban farm nestled within the Vita Health & Wellness District on the West Side of Stamford, Connecticut. Our mission is to increase access to locally grown produce and to strengthen the community by celebrating healthy food through gardening, educational and harvest-related initiatives.
The Farm serves as an outdoor classroom for numerous schools, nonprofit organizations and community members to share skills, learn about nature and build community. Throughout the growing season, Fairgate Farm hosts a Farm Market and multiple workshops focused on environmental stewardship and nutritional awareness. Each year our volunteers harvest and distribute over 8,000 pounds of fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers to benefit the community. One-third of Farm produce is donated to hunger-relief partner agencies while our volunteers and Farm Market patrons enjoy the remaining bounty.
While volunteer opportunities are limited at this time of year, be sure to check back here as we get closer to spring.
In the meantime, Farmer Pete will be in and out of the farm throughout the week so if you are interested in volunteering, please reach out to him by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text him at 203-940-2305.
