About Us  |  Events


 

 

 

Help us begin to prepare for the 2020 growing season at Crossroads Farm.  Join us for our first volunteer event of the new year. We have harvested many seeds from our farm crops this past season and need to process and package them for sale and trade. Learn all about the seeds we’ve collected and how important seed saving is to us and our planet.

Please join us on Wednesday, January 29th at 11:00 AM to help.  To celebrate our first volunteer event of 2020, light refreshments will be served. 

Please sign up  HERE if you’d like to participate.

We appreciate your passion and support, and we hope to see you soon!

We Need Your Help to Keep Growing!

The farm is closed now for the winter, but the work goes on.  We are busy planning for next year.  Please join the Nassau Land Trust board — whose members have all generously contributed and volunteered this year — in supporting the 2019 Annual Fund.

Every donation helps, no matter how large or small.  Click a button below to make a tax-deductible donation. 

        

Our goal is to raise $100,000 for the start of the new year.  We have raised $41,275.00 so far. This will help meet our annual operating costs.

Here are some scenes from school visits this year.  It’s people like you who make our programming possible.

    

    

  

We greatly appreciate your support.  If you have already made a contribution, we thank you!

With gratitude,
