Getting back to the land
Land’s Sake is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit farm that has been connecting people to their local ecology in Weston since 1980. Their focus is tri-fold: environmental education programs, food donation programs, and sustainable land management. Education programs run year-round ranging from tomato canning workshops to week-long summer camps to maple sugaring after-school programs.
Land’s Sake also runs a Community Shared Agriculture Program – members pick up their share of freshly harvested vegetables weekly from June to October. Additionally, all are welcome to visit the Farm stand throughout the summer to pick up daily-harvested vegetables and other local delicacies, such as bread, jam, and cookies.
