We’re in Penn Current!!

18 Sep

Penn Current ran an article about us last Thursday.  We’re really excited about the extra publicity, especially since the Garden is still fairly new.  The article did a good job capturing our views and goals.  Here’s the link to the article in case you want to read it:  http://www.upenn.edu/pennnews/current/features/091610-3.html

For those of you who just want a quick summary, the main points of the article are that we are an organic, student run garden where members get to bring home part of the harvest and the surplus (once we have some) will be donated to the food pantry at St. Mary’s Church.  Another one of our goals is to bring the community together so they can learn about agriculture and what it means.

We have a bunch of exciting events coming up, including a screening of “Food Fight” on September 29th, and we’ll be participating in Penn’s food week from October 18th to the 22nd.

We’ll also be a stop on West Philly Gardens Day on September 19th.  We’re thrilled that the garden is thriving and that it’s garnered so much attention.  Of course, this wouldn’t be possible without the help of our friends.  So thank you to everyone who’s been getting involved, and if you’re not already involved join us!  If you don’t join for the chance to plant crops and get free food, then do so because you want to be at the forefront of an environmental movement on campus.

Thanks to alert observers of the urban agriculture scene, the Penn Garden has gotten some good web exposure. Check us out on gridphilly.com and farmtophilly.com.
