Join the ASPC Outreach Committee for a spring trip to Mill Creek Farm www.millcreekurbanfarm.org, on Saturday, May 19, 10 am – 1 pm. Mill Creek Farm is an urban farm in West Philadelphia committed to producing and distributing fresh food and providing educational opportunities to the community. The farm values the neighborhood in which they farm, experiential education, the environment, community and collaboration, urban food production without the use of chemicals, and equity and justice.
Our trip to the farm on May 19 will consist of a one-hour interactive tour of the farm and facilities where our group will explore many aspects of urban farming, including growing practices, composting, food access, fruit trees, bee-keeping, recycling of salvaged materials, solar electricity, and a found object mosaic. After the tour, we will participate in a two-hour workday on the farm. Anyone can volunteer, it’s a great hands-on learning opportunity, and Mill Creek Farm can really use our help!
