Greensgrow's founder Mary Seton Corboy will get a Sustainable Ag Leader Award
from the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture
at their 21st annual Farming for the Future
conference. (Bravo, Mary!) This year's conference theme is “Breaking Ground for a New Agriculture: Cultivating Versatility and Resilience.” Greensgrow is a model in both.
Greensgrow has spent the last 15 years adapting into the robust, layered urban agriculture enterprise and local food hub that it is today. Over time, Greensgrow has added a garden center and farm stand, a 600-member community supported agriculture program (my family is a member), workshops, and mobile markets to its operations. So today you're just as likely to see Greensgrow's gourmet greens plated up at Philly restaurants, as you are to hear about its LIFE program
that gives neighbors in need access to fresh food along with cooking and nutrition classes.
