New Pond Farm



New Pond Farm is 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 to Connect people with the land that enriches and sustains us all. 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 photography shows, as well as 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 at New Pond Farm and we are grateful for the wonderful volunteers who help us in so many ways.

Some of the many choices include:
  • Invasive Species Removal
