New Sensory Garden

Summer Internship will lead Farm Olympics for Mill Creek Recreation Center summer camp!
Our summer interns work hard harvesting, weeding, and managing our markets during their six week summer internship. Our hard work is awarded by making homemade pizza in our cob oven. This years' interns are growing as leaders in their community as well, engaging nearby summer camps in educational activities, exercise and exploration. Drop by the farm from 9 am- 1 pm, Monday to Thursday to join our farm crew!
Market Season is in Full Swing
Purchase fresh fruits and vegetables every Saturday from 11 am- 2 pm at our on- site market and Wednesdays from 1 pm- 5 pm at 52nd and Haverford Avenue. Each week's market features fruits picked from our fruit tree orchard and vegetables harvested that morning from our fields. Saturday's are a great time to visit the farm, volunteer during the harvest or join us for a workday and potluck from 11:30 am- 1:30 pm. Read more about our produce and farming practices here!
