Things That Matter to People Who Matter

Curator of Puppet Uprising pays tribute to Mill Creek in the City Paper. Check out the December 13th edition of Philadelphia City Paper's Culture Shock column. 


Mill Creek Farm

What's better than fresh produce from a local farm? Fresh produce from your own neighborhood! At 49th and Brown streets sits Mill Creek Farm, an idyllic oasis that grows chemical-free fruits and vegetables to supply local stores and farmers markets. I love dropping by to stick my hands in soil, to relax while weeding, planting peas or picking blueberries. Buying food from Mill Creek makes so much more sense than paying for the gas it takes to bring collards from California. Plus I've been making pies from sweet potatoes that are larger than a small dog. Yum.
