SANCTUARY FARM PHILADELPHIA
URBAN FARMING IN NORTH PHILLY
Urban Farming In
At Sanctuary Farm Philadelphia, we're sowing the seeds of health, community, and sustainability. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and urban farm located in the heart of North Philadelphia, dedicated to promoting positive change within our community. Our mission is simple yet powerful: to provide fresh, organically grown produce and implement programs that enhance the health and well-being of our residents.
Sanctuary Farm is dedicated to tackling the health disparities arising from systemic racial inequality and economic injustices. We achieve this by transforming neglected and abandoned spaces within our community into welcoming, nourishing, and thriving environments that prioritize safety and well-being.
At Sanctuary Farm we provide a space where we can learn, share, and grow together.
THE FARM STAND
At our Farm Stand, we're dedicated to providing North Philly residents with a taste of fresh, free produce grown right at our farm. Join us every Tuesday and Thursday from 9 AM to 12 PM at 22nd and Cecil B. Moore, and on Saturdays from 12 PM to 2 PM at 24th and Berks. This is our way of ensuring that nutritious, organic goodness is within reach for our community.
THERAPEUTIC GARDENING PROGRAM
Our therapeutic gardening program is a continuous journey every Monday and Wednesday 9AM to 12PM at 24th and Berks, running June through November, welcoming anyone eager to embrace the therapeutic benefits of nature and gardening. Whether you're new to gardening or have a green thumb, you're welcome to join! Get your hands in the soil, learn new skills, and make new friends. We provide a light lunch.
VEGGIE SCRIPT PROGRAM
The Veggie Scripts provide a solution for individuals experiencing healthcare challenges like diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. At local health centers, participants gain valuable nutrition education and receive a unique "prescription" signed by their healthcare provider. This prescription can then be redeemed at our produce stand, equipping individuals with the tools they need to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
