Newton Community Farm


Newton’s last farm was saved from development in 2004 when the Newton Board of Aldermen approved the proposal by the Newton Conservators to use Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds to buy the farm.

This lovely piece of open space at a highly visible location near the Charles River and Nahanton Park has been farmed since 2006 by Newton Community Farm.
