Urban Farming in Philadelphia

The Old Tennis Court Farm was established in 2010 by Germantown Friends Meeting and School in the tradition of Quakers to grow food, promote sustainable living, and nurture friendly interactions. Germantown Friends encourages interested gardeners, including individuals, groups, and classes from local public and private schools, to sign up for a plot, try out new ways to grow vegetables, and learn about their neighbors. We hope that everyone in our community will share our vision of a peaceful green space, and that together we can establish a harmonious and vibrant community.
