INCUBATOR GARDEN PROGRAM
The Incubator Garden program is a collaboration between the New Haven Land Trust and New Haven Farms. New Haven Farms offers a Farm-Based Wellness Program to low-income adult patients with diet-related chronic disease risk factors. Graduates of this 16-20 week program are then offered a plot at a New Haven Land Trust community garden and hands-on, in-depth training on how to become resilient community gardeners. New Haven Land Trust staff offer these first-time gardeners support holding weekly “office hours” and workshops at each garden where incubator gardeners are placed. Staff members provide the gardeners with seeds and seedlings and coach them through planning, planting, and caring for their gardens.
