Spend Time This Summer At Yale Farm.

Our friends and neighbors at the Yale Farm located at 345 Edwards Street have invited our community to visit this summer.

Families with children will especially enjoy Volunteer Workdays.  Come for one hour or two.  There are baby chickens that will need attention.  All ages are encouraged to sign up.

So far, the dates look like this:

Friday, May 24 from 1:00-5:00pm
Sunday, May 26 from 1:00-5:00pm
June 14- August 24: Fridays and Saturdays from 9:00am until 4:00pm

Here is some useful information from Jacqui Lewin, Outreach Coordinator for the farm:

  • If you’re coming with more than five (5) people, let us know.
  • Always bring a water bottle, sun protection, and wear work-and-weather appropriate clothing.   We work rain or shine!
  • In the summer we break for lunch from 12:00-1:00.  BYO lunch, but there’s always salad to share:)

Jacqui can be reached by email; jacqueline.lewin@yale.edu.
