On January 1, 2020, New Haven Farms and New Haven Land Trust merged into a single organization after several years of close collaboration and partnership. We have worked over the last six months to integrate our programs and systems, recruit a new Executive Director, and develop a new name that reflects our history, mission, and direction.
We are excited to announce we are now Gather New Haven.
Our tagline conveys our commitment to connecting people to each other as well as to our shared natural resources, and the importance of doing so to grow a vibrant community: Neighbors and Nature Thriving Together.
Our mission reflects the shared histories and commitments of our two predecessor organizations while challenging us to grow deeper in our collective engagement with our community:
Gather New Haven promotes health, equity, and justice for people and the environment by cultivating connections and access to our lands and waters, and inspiring us to care for our wellbeing, our shared community, and our environment.
