Greensgrow West 20th Anniversary Season Opening
5123 Baltimore Avenue
Philadelphia, PA 19143
Greensgrow Farms will launch its 20th Anniversary Season on Sunday, March 26 from 11:30am – 2:30pm. Founded in 1997 as a hydroponic farm on the site of a former steel galvanizing plant, Greensgrow is a nationally recognized leader in developing urban agriculture projects, and providing access to fresh produce in low-income communities.
The March 26 open house and reception at Greensgrow West will honor the memory of founder Mary Seton Corboy, a true Philadelphia visionary, who launched the city’s flagship urban farm, providing new solutions for small farmers and urban residents looking to improve their quality of life.
Sunday’s celebration will include live music from West Philadelphia Foot Tappers, a ribbon-cutting for the Tiny House donated by Drexel University, followed by the announcement of Mary’s Community Fund grant award winners and the official kick-off of Greensgrow’s fundraising campaign for the next 20 years. The reception will feature hors d’oeuvres and seasonal drinks provided by Greensgrow’s Community Kitchen.
The event is free and open to the public
