When & Where
Greensgrow is dedicated to promoting social entrepreneurship through the reuse of land once deemed useless, while reconnecting city dwellers with rural food producers and promoting the greening of Philadelphia's homes and gardens. To this end, Greensgrow runs a City Supported Agriculture (CSA) initiative, farm stand, and nursery; conducts education programs; and consults on urban agriculture practices. As an extension of our mission, we also run a mobile foodmarket in Camden, NJ; manage a CSA for low-income families; and operate a community kitchen.
Greensgrow has established itself as a national leader in urban farming and has been profiled in the New York Times, NPR, and CBS News. In 2011, Greensgrow received the Sustainable Business of the Year Award from the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce and the Food Systems Innovator Award from the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission. Founder Mary Seton Corboy recently received the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture’s 2012 Sustainable Ag Leader Award.
