Its Roots:

ReVision Urban Farm in 1990 began as a little garden next to the Revision Family home, a shelter for mothers and expecting mothers without homes. The goal of the shelter is to help these woman and make a lasting impact in their lives. In 2004, the garden and shelter merged to become what it is today. They continue to help community members to this day, and now it is a home for anyone who needs their help.

Budding Community Impact:

The farm brings fresh and local food to the Dorchester/Mattapan community as well as the resident of the shelter. The foods are well priced, healthy and based on the cultures of the people in the area and the home. They also train homeless people and other community members for jobs in the field.

How can you get involved?

Volunteer! Most volunteers work on their farm, but sometimes there are other opportunities. They are open Tuesday-Friday 9am-4pm generally from mid-March to Mid-November for volunteers.

If you are interested in starting your own garden, you can purchase seedlings from them! If you’d rather support them by purchasing their produce, they have a farm share program by which you get fresh, affordable veggies delivered to your home! You can also find them at farmers markets!

If you live too far away to get involved locally, you can make a donation!
