About Us

 This organization unites two nonprofits, New Haven Farms and the New Haven Land Trust. These organizations have been leaders and innovators in New Haven’s urban environmental movement. The New Haven Land Trust (NHLT), Connecticut’s first urban land trust, has served the community for nearly 40 years by acquiring and stewarding over 80 acres of nature preserves city-wide and by supporting 55 community gardens throughout New Haven’s diverse neighborhoods. NHLT has grown significantly over the last five years to include programs for young environmental entrepreneurs and a marine and coastal exploration summer camp on Long Island Sound. New Haven Farms (NHF) was formed eight years ago with its innovative Farm-Based Wellness Program (FBWP) that partners with medical centers to engage people with diet-related chronic disease risk factors in learning about nutrition and gardening at one of seven farm sites across New Haven.

 

Gather New Haven has a growing commitment to racial equity and community leadership and is taking strides in cultivating broader inclusion and community ownership among its stakeholders. A large part of the organization’s work takes place in bilingual settings, with Spanish and English as the predominant languages. Gather New Haven strives to be a leader for advancing community engagement and focusing the resources of nature to support community health and well being.
