Weavers Way Co-op Farms
Weavers Way Farms represents the Co-op's Ends in action: Our farm department operates working farms in Northwest Philadelphia that provide learning opportunities for our communities as well as fresh, environmentally responsible food.
At our two farm locations, Weavers Way grows more than 50 different types of vegetables and fruit on 6.5 acres, supplying our farmers market, the Weavers Way Co-op stores and the Henry Got Crops CSA with fresh produce. With roots in a volunteer-run garden, the farms now employ five full-time farmers during the growing season. Through the nonprofit Food Moxie (formerly Weavers Way Community Programs), community members and students visit the farms and get their hands dirty planting, weeding, harvesting, tasting and learning about growing healthy food.
