After a fire destroyed its farm stand last month, Newton Community Farm says it will rebuild the structure even bigger and better -- accommodating more produce, providing handicap access, and offering more shade from the afternoon sun.

The farm aims to raise $5,000 for the project, part of which will go towards replenishing reserve funds used while fund-raising gathers momentum. The hope is that the new stand will be ready by the beginning of the produce season.

Tax deductible donations can be made online at the farm's website, or checks made out to 'Newton Community Farm' can be sent to the Farm at 303 Nahanton St., Newton MA 02459.
