New Hope International Farm

In partnership with Catholic Charities’ Common Earth Gardens and the New Hope International refugee services agency, the Earth & Spirit Center New Hope International Farm hosts refugee families, primarily from the East African nations of Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo. With two large greenhouses, sophisticated irrigation systems, and plenty of land under cultivation, these gardens feed over 300 people every year.

The New Hope International Farm also serves as a living outdoor classroom for school children in our Camp Nature Odyssey program, introducing children in grades 1-6 to the process of growing, cooking, and eating healthy food.  If you would like to learn more about the community farm, or donate time or tools or supplies, please email us.
