Yale West Campus Urban Farm

West Campus Community Farm

The West Campus Urban Farm (the Farm) is another resource that West Campus offers to the whole Yale community and their families. Everyone — beginners and seasoned growers alike — is welcome to come help tend the farm, harvest produce, and relax. The farm is also a space for scientific research and educational programming. The layout has been designed with picnic benches scattered throughout the Farm, and plenty of raised beds that grow a variety of vegetables, herbs, and fruits across all four seasons. The Farm is always open to the community, and there are volunteer days when the manager of the Farm, Justin Freiberg, will be present to introduce you to the farm and give helpful growing tips. Volunteer days are announced through the  West Campus Urban Farm newsletter. Please subscribe to the newsletter if you’re interested. For more information, or to see if the West Campus Urban Farm is a place that could work into your research interests, please contact Justin Freiberg.
