Navy Yard to be a Pick-up Location for a Community Supported Agriculture Program in 2023
We are excited to announce the Navy Yard will be a new pick-up location this upcoming spring for a Philadelphia-based community supported agriculture (CSA) program called FarmerJawn.
What is a CSA?
CSAs help local farmers prepare for the season ahead and with your share dollars, they can buy seeds, supplies, plan labor, and purchase equipment to grow all the food in the upcoming season. If you’re thinking about joining the CSA, you are making a powerful decision to support your community economics, your local farmer, and to provide organic nourishment to the mind, body, and soul of you and your loved ones!
Who is FarmerJawn?
FarmerJawn is a local agriculture company that follows regenerative farming practices that concentrate on soil health and increasing access to organic food to marginalized communities. The company has made a commitment to supporting sustainable farming practices in and around the Philadelphia region.
PIDC and FarmerJawn share a goal that highlights and supports local, small businesses, and FarmerJawn helps to support local businesses that take pride in producing organic and/or natural products for your lifestyle, body, and home.
