Thanks to everyone who joined us for our screening! We raised almost $800 to support the farm and met some new friends.
Thanks to Vox Populi Gallery for hosting us, to Shelley Rogers and What's Organic About Organic? for the amazing documentary, Yards Brewery for the beer, Popchips for the snacks, and Mary for drinks and supplies.

We need your help to ensure that we can continue our work. We are trying to get the land that the Mill Creek Farm maintains along with the adjacent community garden, which has been around for over 30 years, put in a land trust with the Neighborhood Gardens Association (NGA) to preserve it as open space. In order to do that, we are seeking the support of Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell to get the title transferred from the City of Philadelphia, which currently owns the property, to the NGA.
Our mission is to improve local access to fresh produce, build a healthy community and environment, and promote a just and sustainable food system.
The Mill Creek Farm implements its mission through farm-based learning programs, by cultivating and distributing fresh produce, and by demonstrating ecological technologies and creative resource use to provide for basic needs.
We believe in food justice: that everyone has a right to affordable, healthy, quality, culturally appropriate food that is accessed in a way that is community-controlled, environmentally sustainable, and socially just.
