Your gift will help us reach our campaign goal of $2.6 million, so we can break ground in spring, 2019 on a new building that advances the recovery process and supports a larger community of guests, staff, volunteers, and alumni.


On Saturday, October 20, 2018, Gould Farm proudly announced the Harvesting Hope Capital Campaign raised $2, 350.779–90% of the $2.6 million needed to build the first Community Center. Designed as a red barn, the building will provide more than 120 guests, staff, families and volunteers who live on the Farm with an additional 5,000 square feet of much-needed flexible space for more integrated wellness, music and arts activities. The larger space also opens up more opportunities for alumni, friends, and Berkshire residents to attend public performances and social events.
