Community Classes

Fairgate Farm is not only an active organic farm, but also a place to build social ties. At Fairgate Farm you can share skills and experiences, learn about our environment and you just might improve your physical and mental well-being.

Throughout the growing season, Farm Manager Pete Novajosky and a variety of guest educators come to share their unique knowledge with the community. The Farm’s classes are held under Anthony’s Arbor, our grapevine-shaded outdoor classroom. Classes begin in early March and continue throughout the spring and summer. Although topics vary from year to year, you will find Pete hosting introductory gardening and container gardening classes, revealing the “mysteries” of composting, discussing techniques of organic gardening or the basics of beekeeping and how to help save our bees. Fairgate Farm believes in addressing all aspects of health and will bring in local professionals to also teach yoga, nature therapy, healthy cooking demonstrations, and more to help you reach complete wellness.
