Carversville Farm Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity, produces free organic food for populations who lack access to a balanced diet; trains at-risk youth through farm, culinary, and other apprenticeships; and nurtures organic farms through cooperative purchasing and other programs, as well as providing education and information exchange. Utilizing advanced sustainable farming methods, the farm works to provide these services while simultaneously regenerating the agro-ecosystem.


 

From Amy & Tony D’Orazio,Founders and Co-Executive Directors of Carversville Farm Foundation,

Thanks to your help last week, we were able to donate 1857.50 pounds of vegetables and herbs in the last week to Broad Street Ministry, Coalition Against Hunger and, with the wonderful volunteers of Rolling Harvest Food Rescue, to multiple Bucks County food pantries via the Bensalem and New Britain multi-pantry distribution locations. 


We are in the middle of harvest time at the farm, and we need your help. Every Wednesday and Saturday mornings, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., we need volunteers to help us get our farm fresh produce from our fields to the shelters, food pantries and soup kitchens that provide much needed food to food-insecure populations in the Greater Philadelphia area.

No need to R.S.V.P., but if you would like to let us know you’re coming, that would be helpful, and does not commit you to showing up.  If you want to RSVP or have any questions, please email or call Stephanie at stephanie@carversvillefarm.org or 215-680-5487.

This week at the farm, we will be harvesting head lettuce, collard greens, garlic scapes and kale and, as always, doing a bit of weeding.


The farm is located at 6127 Mechanicsville Road, Mechanicsville, PA 18934. Please wear comfortable clothing and appropriate footwear.   We will provide gloves, tools, and water.

 

With our heartfelt thanks for all of your help,

Amy & Tony D’Orazio
Founders and Co-Executive Directors
Carversville Farm Foundation
