A remnant of Mattapan's rural history is a former farm known as the Fowler Clark Epstein property, whose dilapidated structures date back to the 19th century.

The Trust for Public Land is working with Historic Boston Incorporated, the Urban Farming Institute, the North Bennet Street School, and the local community to transform this neglected property into a verdant working farm and center for urban agriculture. The center will provide farming training, public education programs, a farmers market, and a demonstration kitchen.

This project is part of our Boston Urban Agriculture Partnership—a community-driven effort to create twelve small urban farms to provide healthy food, create job opportunities, and foster more livable neighborhoods.
