Mill Creek Farm
West Philly Grown | No Chemicals Used
Mill Creek Urban Farm is an educational farm and environmental education center located in West Philadelphia. We are dedicated to improving local access to fresh, chemical-free produce at low cost for the immediate Mill Creek community and surrounding neighborhoods. We are a people of color-led non-profit organization in service of communities of color in need of basic resources. Mill Creek Urban Farm is dedicated to cultivating a healthy environment, growing strong communities and promoting a just and sustainable food system.
A Little Taste of Everything (ALTOE) is a non-profit agency whose mission is to increase access to nutritious, affordable foods and provide food system education for low-income populations in Philadelphia. ALTOE grew out of a youth-driven project at University City High School (UCHS) in conjunction with the Urban Nutrition Initiative (UNI) and received its non-profit status in 2005. ALTOE evolved from previous efforts to improve food security in West Philadelphia communities through school gardens and farmers’ markets.
ALTOE’s mission is put into action through the Mill Creek Farm (MCF), an educational urban farm project.
