Founded in 2005, Mill Creek Farm is an educational urban farm that is led by people of color. We cultivate and distribute fresh produce, host farm-based learning programs for people of all ages, and demonstrate ecological technologies to provide for basic needs.
Located at 49th and Brown Streets in West Philadelphia, we are dedicated to improving local access to fresh, chemical-free produce at sustainably low-cost for the immediate Mill Creek community and surrounding neighborhoods. We are dedicated to building a healthy community and environment, and promoting a just and sustainable food system.
We didn't encourage in-person visits in 2020 due to the pandemic. Like everyone else, we're regrouping now! Hopefully, we'll soon be able to get back to encouraging everyone to come in and visit during our regular hours which are:
Tuesday 10am-12pm and Thursday 10am-12pm
Saturday 10am-2pm .
You don't need a green thumb to volunteer. There are many ways to pitch in at Mill Creek Farm. Right now, we're looking for people who know how to build hoop houses! If that's you OR if you have administrative, educational, fundraising, finance, trade skills (e.g. culinary, carpentry, arboriculture, plumbing, electrical work), or other talents to contribute, please let us know using our Volunteer form.
*Volunteer and Visiting Hours are subject to change.* Thank You!
