About Our Harvest
All flowers, fruits, vegetables, herbs and poultry are fresh from our farm at the Awbury Agricultural Village in Germantown.
Awbury’s Teen Leadership Corps (TLC)’s Uptown and Downtown Farms, promote environmental sustainability and youth entrepreneurship. Our farm is managed entirely with no-till sustainable growing methods emphasizing soil health, & biodiversity.
We grow a range of crops for feeding our program participants, selling at market, and donating to local food pantries.
We partner with Penn State Extension Master Gardeners, Philadelphia Public Schools, and City Harvest to share best practices in urban agriculture, horticulture, soil science, poultry husbandry, and pollinators.
