Open Door Friday Farm Program

Fridays hum and sizzle at Providence Farm. An additional 35 to 50 volunteers each week help with everything from barn cleaning to farm maintenance, baking, kitchen and janitorial work. At lunchtime, the whole farm gets together for a hot meal – a real community event!

This program, whose purpose is to encourage physical activity and mental stimulation of people recovering from mental illness, began in 1980. It has been in operation each Friday from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM ever since.
