Greensgrow is a non-profit organization growing healthier and happier cities through urban agriculture. As farmers ourselves, we believe supporting a robust local food system is essential to protecting the health and wealth of our families, community, and environment. Our Farm Share program (formerly the Greensgrow CSA) is an important bridge between the urban consumer and our rural producers, contributing over a half a million dollars annually to the health and vitality of small family farmers, while growing fresh food access in all corners of the city.
We’re excited to grow the impact of this work through an exciting new partnership that extends the Greensgrow Farmshare model to new neighborhoods. Starting Nov 28th, all Greensgrow Farm Shares will be administered by Philly Foodworks, a partner company committed to strengthening the local food economy, and whose distribution network includes many of the same farmers that we have used for years.
Philly Foodworks has created shares that closely mimic what you’ve come to expect from Greensgrow, preserving our commitment to earth-friendly local farmers and abundant and diverse boxes of the highest quality food. In addition, PFW offers more than 500 local items in its online market—from produce, dairy, bread, and meats to prepared foods, pantry items, and home and beauty products. You can easily modify your orders online, and you’ll also be able to stop and start your subscription as needed for vacations or other life events, or even opt for home delivery. More flexibility means more value!

We’re excited about this new partnership because it will allow us to focus on the farm and its programs, while still supporting local farmers. In addition, PFW will contribute 15% of purchases made by Greensgrow members to the farm, helping to sustain our food access programs like SNAP Share and Mobile Markets. So you can feel good about getting the food you love while supporting the farmers you love – including us! It will also help us be more efficient, leveraging combined marketing and transportation systems to reduce our environmental footprint, while directing even more support to our network of local producers.
If you’re a returning Greensgrow Farm Share member – or a prospective new member – we encourage you to visit the special FAQ page on the Philly Foodworks website to learn more, and hopefully join us in growing a stronger local food system for all!
