Urbanstead introduces itself with the line, "Food, Farm, Grow," and gives the following descriptive information:
Urbanstead works to achieve healthy futures by uniting the community and creating programs to empower Philadelphia's vulnerable youth through the platform of urban farming.
Urbanstead was created for Philadelphia youth because consuming food grown with their own hands is an opportunity few youth in the city ever encounter. Urbanstead believes that by increasing these experiences, young people will see improvement in emotional, physical and mental health, as well as a stronger and more unified community! Our programming engages young people of all ages and the community that surrounds them!
