Promoting Agriculture, Conservation, and Preservation
Hilltop Farm is a community resource for education. The Friends are excited to be able to share these programs with the community:
For the past 19 years FOFAH has been working with local farmers, state and federal agencies to prevent erosion, and improve and maintain the soils in the open space at Hilltop. The FOFAH board is delighted to be able to share the farmland with the local community, offering garden plots to individuals, groups, and families. Have fun and enjoy gardening at Hilltop Farm.
