You are invited to be a naming sponsor of our modern-day barn raising, in which we transform Freetown Farm’s 4,000-square-foot, timber-framed barn (which was constructed in 2009 by the previous owner) into our Community Engagement Center! Naming rights level gifts are a substantial contribution, and we want to be sure we connect with you closely about this opportunity.
All the details for naming rights level gifts are available for download below.
Please email Chiara D'Amore at email@example.com with any questions and to review current naming rights availability and room name preferences. Contributions can be made by check, transfer, and other formats.
This sturdy building was very thoughtfully designed with a number of green-building features, but it was never completed. It still lacks electricity, plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Bringing this building into its full potential is essential to accomplishing CEI’s mission of cultivating communities where people and nature thrive together.
With sweat and joy, the Community Ecology Institute has turned Freetown Farm into a flourishing hive of community activity. In the past two years–-without any indoor amenities-–we welcomed more than 1,500 people and grew more than 10,000 pounds of food for the community.
Imagine how much more inviting, inclusive, and impactful Freetown Farm will be with accessible, indoor classrooms, rest rooms, meeting areas, and offices.
We expect construction to begin on the barn renovation this summer and to be complete before cold weather returns. We are so excited to welcome you into this new space!
