About Us

About us:

The Novick Family Urban Farm is Novick Brother’s 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.

 

2016 saw the start of our partnership with local non-profit group Grow Philly. In our first year, the farm provided over 10,000 pounds of produce that went back to the community. We hosted over 775 children on educational farm visits emphasizing hands-on interactive lessons and healthy eating choices.
