sanctuary saturdays

The first Saturday of every month, we are picking a different charity and donating 100% of the profits to said charity.  This is our effort to give back to the community and your chance to give in the easiest way possible.  

  • Saturday, October 7th - Massaro Farm  ( )                                                              

Massaro Community Farm is a non profit, certified-organic farm on a 57-acre parcel of land deeded to the town by the Massaro Family, who had farmed the land since 1916. Our farm operation includes a 200-member CSA, a weekly presence at Woodbridge and CitySeed Farmer’s Markets, and sale of our produce to select area restaurants. Each year, we donate at least 10% of what we grow to local hunger relief agencies with over 44,000 lbs donated since we started. We collaborate with local schools and community groups to increase environmental, agricultural, and nutritional awareness through educational trips and classes for all ages
