Elawa Farm is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the restoration of Elawa Farm, a gentleman's farm built in 1915. The efforts of the Elawa Staff and countless volunteer hours have created a garden space that combines traditional farming practices with the needs and interests of our current community.
At Elawa over two acres are cultivated every year, providing a remarkable array of heirloom tomatoes, lettuces and fresh greens, carrots, beets, squash, honey, flower bouquets, herbs and more. Our freshly harvested produce and flowers are available for sale at our on-site Garden Market on Friday and Saturday mornings during the summer.
Striving towards sustainability, the garden utilizes practices such as field rotation, cover cropping, beneficial predation and organic composting. All these practices are executed by our dedicated volunteers whose work ensures Elawa’s continued role here in the community as a source for fresh, organically grown local produce.
We invite all to volunteer to learn more.
