New Pond Farm



We are a non-profit environmental education center with an exceptional farm component that has been designated as one of the State’s Dairy Farms of Distinction. We are located in West Redding, Ct on 102-acres with rolling pastures, woodlands, and wetlands. The organization’s mission is On every acre, in all we do, we plant seeds for a lifetime of active engagement with the natural world. Our five primary areas of programming are environmental studies; farming and gardening (includes beekeeping); Native American lifeways; astronomy; and the arts (including Shakespeare programs, biannual art shows, and music).

We are a vibrant, fiscally sound organization. We pride ourselves in being small and personal, sharing unique and excellent programming with our 12,000 annual students and visitors. We are a membership organization with 800 member families.

There is always plenty of work to do and we are grateful for the wonderful volunteers who help us in so many ways.
