said camp parent Colleen. Farm Camp is a memorable experience for youth who visit Montclair Community Farms each summer. “I was very happy when she heard about Farm Camp and that she was interested in attending because she heard they kept chickens. I was even more excited that we could afford this camp, and that it was so close to home.” Just like Colleen’s family, many campers live in surrounding neighborhoods and choose to spend multiple weeks at a camp focused on being outdoors, animals, our farms, and giving back. “At 10 years of age, she had only had a couple of day camp experiences, and she didn’t love any of them. We knew Farm Camp was special instantly.”
A portion of camp proeeds support the mission of Montclair Community Farms, but more is needed. From now until December 31, every dollar you donate to the Montclair Community Farms will be matched 1:1 by Partners for Health. Montclair Community Farms is only possible thanks to the support of the community and our generous donors. Your $25 donation helps feed our happy brood of chickens. A $50 donation helps us expand the varieties of produce we grow on the farm. A $100 donation supports better irrigation and compost systems. A $250 donation allows our staff to connect more often with volunteers. And a $500 donation helps bring our mobile stand to even more food pantries and seniors.
