Overview

Mission Statement

The mission of the Friends of Holly Hill Farm is to enhance and use the resources of Holly Hill Farm, which includes its organic farm operations, its historic farm buildings, and its diversified natural areas for education purposes. Educational goals include teaching the value of sustainable farming principals that result in healthy food and responsible stewardship that protects the land.


Background Statement

The Friends of Holly Hill Farm (FHHF) is the non-profit education center based at Holly Hill Farm, a certified organic vegetable, flower, and herb farm in Cohasset, MA. In addition to 3 acres of farm fields, the farm is home to diverse habitats including 120 acres of woods with marked trails, open fields, streams, a salt water marsh, vernal pools and ponds. Trails are open dawn to dusk year round and the public is welcomed to explore the trails any day of the year. There are many historic barns and buildings dating back to 1785. There are barnyard animals including horses, a bunny, goats, and chickens which are kept for their eggs. We sell to the public at the farm stand and at one weekly farmer’s market. The land has been farmed since the 1600s but has been owned and farmed in a number of ways by the White family since the 1850s. The FHHF was founded in 2002 by Frank H. White who had retired from a career in outdoor education, including many years as the director of the Thompson Island Outward Bound Center in Boston Harbor. It was Frank’s vision to resume farming operations in 1998 after a period of less active growing. A farm manager was hired and crops were first planted in 1998. After several years of organic farming, the FHHF was created to begin offering education programs based at the farm to teach sustainable agriculture principles that produce healthy food and foster stewardship of the land. Jon Belber was hired as Education Director in 2004. Since that time, the FHHF has grown and now teaches school programs, summer camps, workshops for adults and families year round, and after school programs including a new 4H program. We welcome scout and other community groups, service learning groups from a variety of schools, worksites, and other organizations. FHHF has active teaching partnerships with over 40 schools in many towns across the South Shore and 5 schools in Boston. For many schools, the partnership includes a teaching garden where FHHF staff offers curriculum-based school “farm garden” lessons. Topics include plant and insect life cycles, soil science, botany, nutrition, the origins of food, and sustainable practices including school cafeteria lunch scrap composting, seed saving, rain water harvesting, and cover cropping. Holly Hill Farm and the FHHF welcome all ages to come and learn by doing what it takes to grow healthy organic food in a way that cares for the land.

CEO Statement

The Friends of Holly Hill Farm, Inc. is distinctive due to its historic buildings, five generations of ownership by one family, diversity of terrain and ecosystems, and foresight to preserve the property with a conservation restriction forty years ago. The most important goal of the Friends is to provide quality education that teaches the value of sustainable farming principles resulting in healthy food and responsible stewardship and to ensure the protection of the historic buildings and diversified natural areas for educational purposes.
 
We accomplish our goal of providing quality education by teaching hundreds of children at the farm while on school field trips and during the summer camp programs. Off the farm education and engagement occurs at 28 schools where we have farm gardens, where the children grow, harvest and eat what they have raised. Our very talented education staff also teaches at schools where we don't have gardens by involving the students in hands-on learning activities, and encouraging them to come to the farm to see the larger scale of a working farm.  Learning where their food comes from, how and why to grow it organically as well as following conservation and sustainable practices are all lessons that we teach.  
 
Adults participate in a variety of educational activities through workshops, farm tours, a summer film series shown on the back of the barn, and presentations at local community venues. Our success is partly measured by the number of people who continue their involvement with the Friends through annual membership, program and workshop participation and by encouraging others to come to the farm.
 
Our neighborhood farm is an unusual oasis in the time of multiple electronic gadgets and distractions from our natural world. Whether it's visiting the farm animals, jogging or skiing the trails or simply taking a walk with a four legged friend, everyone is welcome. The Friends of Holly Hill Farm depends upon the consistent assistance from volunteers who help in many ways. Their desire to give back reinforces our knowledge of their commitment to be an active part of our community.

Programs

Community Service, Service Learning, and Outreach

FHHF regularly hosts individuals and groups who seek to volunteer on the farm. Our new Farm to Food Pantry program enables high school students who have Community Service requirements to work at the farm: prepare plantings beds, plant crops, harvest, wash and deliver to local food pantries. The value of hard work, the understanding that there are populations that don't have access to organic produce and the experience of meeting the clients and chefs who will prepare the fresh food the students have grown is a valuable experience. In addition to students, we host service learning groups from worksites, scout and other community groups. Volunteers help weed, plant, make compost, repair facilities and assist with barnyard chores. Unlike field trips, workshops, and other forms of teaching, we do not receive any fees or funding for offering this type of instruction and supervision. While the help is critical to the success of the farm and is much appreciated, this work takes staff time that is currently not compensated by program fees. We participate in local educational fairs where we share our farming and teaching expertise. We have established several community gardens that provide organic produce for local food. pantries. While access to healthy produce is a necessity for all in the community, no compensation is received for this work.

Program Short-Term Success  Short term success could be defined by community service volunteers leaving the farm feeling satisfied with the knowledge that they helped complete an important project.  Farm volunteers frequently learn new skills, and find talents they never knew they possessed.  We currently do not have a way to collect information about this other than a brief interview before the volunteer experience to discuss expectations of the work time.  We are not currently collecting any information of knowledge or skills prior to volunteering. Evaluating the volunteer experiences via surveys or interviews would yield interesting and useful information that we could use to further refine the ways in which we engage with volunteers.  
Program Long-Term Success 
As with all the programs we offer, long term success can be defined in many ways. There is ample research that demonstrates that providing hands on meaningful work experiences for teens can be a life changing experience. When the work involves something we can all relate to - our food - then the experience is that much more "real" to teens. The same is true for adults visiting the farm on a corporate service learning program. We seek to provide meaningful experiences that inspire and change awareness and behavior. Measures of long term success could include measurable behavior changes - do those who volunteer on the farm start a garden at home after their time volunteering on the farm, do they alter their grocery shopping choices and begin to purchase organic instead of conventionally grown produce, do they start compost piles at home, work or school? There are many areas of opportunity for us to explore the impact of our programs on the people with whom we work on and off the farm.
Program Success Monitored By  The successes of our Community Service and Service Learning programs are not currently being monitored, although we are developing a tracking system that is new to us for 2014.  The tracking system will be able to account for the number of hours worked by staff and volunteer groups, as well as other groups that visit the farm. Besides the number of hours, we would like to develop a short survey questionnaire as well, evaluating Community Service and Service Learning volunteers knowledge and impressions after their work experience.  We recognize that this is an area of opportunity for us here that could impact the way we engage with volunteers.  
Examples of Program Success  Program success can be defined by student and other service learning groups returning to the farm to help year after year. We have existing relationships with several local schools and worksites that send volunteers to the farm on a regular basis and we count these "repeat customers" as an example of our ability to provide high quality, meaningful Community Service and Service Learning experiences to youth and adults.  We regularly receive letters and emails from volunteers thanking us for a great experience.  We recognize that there is a wealth of information that we could capture through interviews, testimonials, or surveys.  We currently do not have any data on this and recognize that this is an area of opportunity for us in the future that could impact the way we offer programming to the community in the future.  

Instructional Outreach (Teaching at Schools)

The Friends of Holly Hill Farm (FHHF) has teaching partnerships with more than 40 schools in 12 South Shore towns and in Boston where farm educators teach in school "farm gardens" during the fall and spring of the school year.  The FHHF has worked with teachers to develop a set of garden-based lesson plans that are connected to State Frameworks in grades k-12.  Students in grades pre-k to 12 sow seeds, weed, cultivate, make compost, observe growth, save seeds, and make seasonal observations about plants and insects living in the garden.  The result of all this care and cultivation is "edible curriculum" where students and teachers can taste the fruits of their labor. An essential way of reaching kids is to bring fresh, organic produce to their school. Sustainable practices happen too in the form of seed saving in Autumn, composting cafeteria scraps and setting up rain barrels to catch and use water to water the seeds and plants.

Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  Short term success would be defined by students excited about what they have just learned after a visit to the garden. We regularly hear that teachers return to the classroom and have their students write in their journals about their time in the garden.  As of now, we do not have any pre / post garden education program evaluation tool in place to assess short term success, but several easy strategies could be implemented. 
Program Long-Term Success  As with all our programs, long term success of school based programs would be assessed by measuring the retention of concepts learned in the garden program. There is ample research that shows that hands-on, nature-based learning is good for children - it boosts standardized test scores and improves social and emotional health.  Measures of long term success that we can assess are teacher satisfaction with the lessons offered and some assessment of skills and knowledge gained by students after their time in the garden.  We are not currently evaluating the experiences of teachers or students after our garden based lessons.  
Program Success Monitored By  We have a short survey we hand out to teachers as they are preparing to leave the farm after a field trip. It would be possible to revise that to use to evaluate teachers' experience with a school garden lesson.  There is an area of opportunity here for more intensive feedback from teachers, via emailed surveys or interviews with selected teachers, children, parent garden docents, etc.
Examples of Program Success  We do not have any statistical data on this as of yet, but we do have a lot of anecdotal reports from teachers who send emails and notes after their garden teaching lessons to report on how much the students loved their time in the garden, how much they learned, etc.  We have photos of some journal entries that students have written after their garden teaching session. One of our partner schools produced a book about their experiences growing garlic over the course of a season. We have many photos of students harvesting "edible curricula" in their school "farm gardens" and eating their harvest in the cafeteria on special "farm to school" days.  Collecting data to quantify these "warm and fuzzy" reports and experiences is another area of opportunity for us.

School Field Trips to Holly Hill Farm

The Friends of Holly Hill Farm offers field trips to Holly Hill Farm which provides kids with a fun, hands-on, learning experience. Programs include a tour of 6 areas at the farm: greenhouse, compost area, Peck's Meadow (one of the larger growing fields on the farm), the Education Loop (a woodland trail adjacent to the historic Ox Pasture, another growing field), our animal area chickens, goats, rabbit and horses), and Education Garden in which students smell and taste what's growing as well as do some useful work planting, weeding, adding compost. Each field trip is matched to the curriculum focus of the visiting school. Focus areas include soil study, life cycles of plants and animals, pattern and sensory recognition for younger students, ecology and environmental awareness, and responsible stewardship of the land. The Farm Educators and volunteers are trained to work with diverse student populations, making each experience unique, educational and lasting!

Program Short-Term Success  Short term success would be defined by students leaving the farm after their field trip happy and excited about what they have just learned.  We regularly hear that teachers return to the classroom and have their students write in their journals about their field trip experience.  As of now, we do not have any pre / post field trip evaluation tool in place to assess short term success, but several easy strategies could be implemented. 
Program Long-Term Success 

The field trip experience is designed to supplement and enrich key concepts learned in school. Field trips are aligned with MA K-12 State Standards. There is ample research demonstrating the benefits to childrens' intellectual, social and emotional development from hands-on, nature-based educational experiences.  Measures of long term success from our field trip program that we can assess are teacher satisfaction with the field trip and some assessment of the skills and knowledge gained in their time at the farm.  Our hope is that every child who comes to the farm has an experience that changes the way they look at the life cycles of living things, at the way food is grown, at the way farm animals are cared for, and the need to care for and preserve the environment. The field trip might impact the choices that a child's family makes in purchasing or growing food, showing their concern for the environment by beginning a backyard compost pile or watering their garden with rainwater.

Program Success Monitored By  We have a survey we hand out to teachers as they are preparing to leave the farm.  There is an area of opportunity here for more intensive feedback from teachers, via emailed surveys or interviews with selected teachers, children, parent chaperons, etc. 
Examples of Program Success  We do not have any statistical data on this as of yet, but we do have a lot of anecdotal reports from teachers who send emails and notes after their field trip to report on how much the students loved the trip, how much they learned, etc.  We have received heartfelt notes from classrooms thanking us for a wonderful field trip. We have photos of some journal entries that students have written after their farm field trip.  Collecting data to quantify these "warm and fuzzy" feelings is another area of opportunity for us.  

Summer Camp Programs at the Farm

Each summer hundreds of children, ages 3-18 come to the farm to learn about organic farming and to explore the diverse habitats of the farm’s 130 acres of woods, waterways and open fields through hands-on activities, games, and songs. Each age group has ample opportunities to sow seeds, transplant, cultivate and harvest vegetables. The farm is a great place for children of all ages to take hikes on the trails, explore the salt marsh, meadows and the historic ice pond. Children harvest and cook food grown on the farm, create art and drama on the farm, and help build lasting projects such as bat houses and birdfeeders. High school youth tend and grow crops which they bring to a nearby food pantry and shelter. We provide training for teens to learn to be Assistant Farm Teachers and Farm Counselors for the younger aged children.

Category  Food, Agriculture & Nutrition, General/Other Sustainable Agriculture
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  Every child should leave camp at the end of every day dirty, happy and knowing something new that they learned that day, whether it be how to plant a seed, make a farm-related craft, sing a song, play a game, care for a farm animal, identify a tree leaf, or be able to describe the taste of the new vegetable they tried that day! We do not currently assess short term success of our summer camp programs and recognize this as an area of opportunity for us.  
Program Long-Term Success 
The goal of summer camp is that children come to the farm and have fun while learning about the environment, the origins of food, and sustainable agricultural practices through hands on experiences, activities, games and songs. There is ample research that demonstrates the effect that nature-based experiences have on learning and social and emotional health. As with our school field trip programs, the hope is that every child who comes the camp, leaves with a new perspective on the way food is grown, how farm animals are cared for and how we care for the environment. Long term success would be to increase students’ knowledge and to spark an awareness of the need to care for the environment. At a deeper level, their summer camp experience might impact the choices that child's family makes in purchasing organic food, or starting a garden to grown their own at home, or showing their concern for the environment by beginning a backyard compost pile or watering their garden with rainwater.
Program Success Monitored By  Feedback surveys are sent to all families of summer camp participants. In summer of 2013, we developed and implemented a short questionnaire on Survey Monkey that was sent to all camp participants' families asking about their children's experiences with summer camp at Holly Hill Farm.  Questions were asked about the content of the program, satisfaction with the content and the staff and if they would recommend camp to friends and return next year.  
Examples of Program Success  Surveys were sent to 174 families whose children attended camp for 1 or more weeks.  We received 39 responses for a response rate of 22%.  82% of respondents reported they would recommend Holly Hill Farm camp program to friends and 77% reported that their child or children would be very likely to attend camp again next year. 79% of respondents rated the quality of programs as excellent and 92% rated the friendliness of the staff as excellent. An interesting lesson learned from last summer's survey data is that 92% of respondents rate nature-based programming as being important factor when deciding on a camp program for their children whereas only 64% of respondents reported that farming and food based programs was an important factor they considered when making summer camp selections.  We plan to further refine the survey for summer 2014 and to change the way we administer the survey in hopes of increasing our response rate and gaining more valuable data about our programs.  

Workshops at the Farm for Adults and Families

There are many opportunities for adults and families in the community to come learn about a variety of topics related to organic farming and sustainable practices. We offer many workshops throughout the year on bee keeping, compost making, organic growing of vegetables and flowers, garlic planting, care and keeping of backyard chickens, cooking and tasting, flower arranging and more. We lead informational, guided walks on the farm in every season to discover different parts of the farm, look for birds and wild edibles too. We host acclaimed, local chefs who use seasonal vegetables from the fields to make a farm to table dinner several times during the growing season. Other events include tomato tasting, movies and "locavore" potluck dinners, wreath making and hay rides, preserving the harvest, and more!

Program Short-Term Success  Short term success would be measured in program participants leaving the farm happy and satisfied that they learned something new.  Ideally, participants would feel like they can take their new knowledge and apply it in some way that benefits them, their personal health, or the health of the environment. 
Program Long-Term Success  As with our school and summer programs, the long term goal is to provide programs that educate and inspire.  We strive to empower attendees to use the knowledge gained  in a workshop to begin a new hobby or increase their knowledge of something they are already doing like growing their own garden, preserving their harvest, composting at home, or cooking with farm fresh vegetables.   
Program Success Monitored By  We have not yet developed an assessment tool to evaluate the effectiveness or perceived quality of the programs we offer to adults and families.  Beginning in 2014, we are tracking the number of attendees to each program to assess the popularity of each program.  
Examples of Program Success  Success would be defined in participants reporting they were happy with both the quality of the program and with the value for the price paid (some programs are free but most are fee-based).  For programs that involve skills to be applied at home including gardening, composting, cooking, foraging for wild edibles, preserving and other hands on programs, an important measure of success would be to evaluate if participants took the information from the workshop and applied it at home.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.
