Greensgrow is an educational urban farm and demonstration garden that provides an essential connection to food and nature in an urban community. We are a non-profit dedicated to promoting social wellness through community green space. Greensgrow reconnects city dwellers with rural food producers and promoting the greening of Philadelphia’s homes and gardens. Together we are building a better, more progressive and sustainable Philadelphia.
We run two garden centers, educational programming, food access programs and other projects resulting in permanent jobs and sustainable income. A small, dedicated staff runs our multi-faceted organization.
Greensgrow Farms is our original farm location built on a site that was once a factory. Today visitors are greeted by three large high tunnel raised beds, green houses, a well stocked garden center and farmstand, our animal family, and a variety of community events and educational workshops.
Greensgrow West is a West Philly community hub built on a long abandoned site on Baltimore Avenue. The site features and features a tiny house with a reading library, a thriving garden center, greenhouse, mini-farmstand, chickens, and a variety of community-focused events and educational programming.
