Greensgrow Farms

Philly’s best-known urban farm takes as much care with its ferns and honeysuckles as it does with its kale and carrots. And supporting it supports the neighborhood: Greensgrow does everything from planting trees along nearby streets to creating jobs to running a food-share program for its neighbors.
