Grow Food Northampton originally formed as a listserv among a group of concerned citizens who wanted to preserve a 180 acre tract of farm land slated for development. Successful collaboration with the City of Northampton and the Trust for Public Land preserved the land, from which Grow Food Northampton, as a newly incorporated non-profit, bought 121 acres to create a sustainable community farm. Since then, four separate farms and the Florence Organic Community Garden have taken root. This is the story of how far they have come.
