First Market is May 31st We will have a raffle and prizes on the first week! Grow Philly has partnered with Novick Brothers Corporation to create this new farm focused on educating youth and adults, while providing healthy culturally appropriate produce to refugees and others in need in South Philadelphia. In our first season - we donated over 10,000 pounds of produce and sold 9,000 pounds at our low-income farm stand. We trained 5 teens in sustainable farming, empowered a group of 5 adult refugee interns, and taught 785 kids about nutrition and farming. This year we have already donated over 1,000 pounds of healthy produce. We are training 5 local adults and have already taught nearly 2,000 students in lessons on the farm and in schools. Farm Mission Statement: The Novick Family Urban Farm is our non-profit educational farm program that is dedicated to promoting healthy choices, nutrition, sustainability and community engagement. By providing hands on learning opportunities to local Childcare programs, we are able to educate children at their youngest on healthy eating and nutrition, promoting long term healthy choices. We are also focused on building community relationships, not only through the produce we donate, but through the outreach programs we partner in.


WHYY Learning Lab Video

Our Stories, Our Health is a project that has been teaching Vietnamese and Laotian elders to shoot video interviews about health topics they identified as important to their communities. The footage will be used in health workshops throughout the Southeast Asian community in the Philadelphia area. The Learning Lab has provided the video training, which is the focus of this behind-the-scenes look at the project.
