In the late 1970s, a collaborative group of neighbors and friends interested in saving Katama Farm from being subdivided into 700 building lots formed the "Committee to Do Something". With their help, the Edgartown Conservation Commission became the landlord of Katama Farm, conserving its history and future as a working farm. Today, The Trustees are happy to welcome The FARM Institute into our family of more than 100 inspired places statewide.
