Description: At Greener Partners, we believe local food is the best kind — where those who eat it feel connection to the soil it's grown in and the people who cultivate it. In imagining a better food system, Greener Partners operates community Farm Hubs as resources for local produce and for education — as well as inspiration — about food and farming. Our farmers grow vegetables, herbs and fruit for our own Farm Market, Community Supported Agriculture members and to sell at area farmers' markets. Our education programs engage kids, both on our farms and in area schools, through programs like Seed to Snack®, The SOL Food Project and Growing Greener Summer Camps. To cross generations, we offer workshops for adults and families on the "lost arts" of our agricultural and cultural past that still are relevant and useful in our lives today.With a diverse range of projects throughout the Philadelphia region, we seek to make local food accessible by offering multiple ways of experiencing fresh, local food in our communities. Through our First Generation Farmer Program we are training the next generation of farmers to possess diverse skills for cultivating a better food system.We hope you'll join us!
