Scenic and productive farmland, diverse wildlife, clean water and saltwater wetlands - these are just some of the distinct riches of life in Dartmouth made available to all through the steadfast, collaborative work of visionary landowners and conservation organizations. Together, we are making a lasting, positive impact on the coastal landscape around us for today and for future generations. From Allens Pond to Padanaram, the conservation and protection of our precious natural resources needs continuous support.
APPONAGANSETT BAY FARM - 128 ACRES
Apponagansett Bay Farm lies in the center of a complex of existing protected lands that has long been a top conservation priority. The property contains critical wildlife habitat, fronts on Dike Creek which flows to Apponagansett Bay, and is surrounded on three sides by protected open space. It is a key link in a stretch of historic Bakerville-area working farms. The acquisition and permanent protection of this 128 acres represents the last large-acreage block of undeveloped land on Dike Creek.
EVA'S GARDEN - 21 ACRES
For over forty years, Eva's Garden has produced local, certified-organic specialty herbs, greens, beautiful flowers, and delectable vegetables. Located on Jordan Road near Allens Pond and the recently-protected Ocean View Farm, Eva's Garden is a working farm with a well-established operation employing, mentoring, and inspiring future farmers. Comprised of particularly rich agricultural soils, this strategic parcel is in need of protection to enable the continuation of farming well into the future.
