The sixteen acres of the Arboretum northwest of Washington Lane make up the Farm at Awbury (previously known as the Agricultural Village). A shared space for various local organizations, The Farm at Awbury is an open community hub for agricultural activity, education, and collaboration. From gardening to goat walks, Harvest Festivals, workshops and classes at the Education Center, co-op farming, and much more, there’s always something new to discover in this educational and community-focused area.
Visitors are welcome from dawn to dusk; the space is free and open to the public. Please be mindful of the vegetable and flower beds, beehives, and animal enclosures, and follow any posted signage. There is plenty to see and learn in this unique area of the Arboretum!
