Our volunteer teams are winding down as the weather turns cooler. We are still out gardening, just not as often. Please bring your own gloves and wear a mask out of consideration for others.
For new volunteers: Please contact Brenda at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

The Easton Urban Farm is located on the South Side of Easton at 902 Philadelphia Road, at The Neighborhood Center, and is a community based effort. In 2019, the garden produced over 6,000 pounds of produce, which was distributed through local organizations.
Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Easton Urban Farm is to encourage residents to access healthy food through purchase, cultivation, and sharing. Our expected outcomes are:
To encourage and develop healthy communities by providing access to locally grown produce to residents of Easton neighborhoods, through volunteer and community efforts at the Easton Urban Farm and local community gardens.
To improve the quality of life through gardening education, workshops, and classes on cultivating and preparing locally grown produce.
To promote community involvement by providing volunteer opportunities and training at local gardens.
What are we growing?
The farm is focused on growing any and all kinds of vegetables. We're also ramping up our flower collection.
What happens to the produce?
Lots of different things. Much of the produce is donated to the West Ward Veggie Stand/Vegetables in Community project and to the Friday Food Pantry at The Neighborhood Center. Produce is also available at seasonal markets and to the volunteers who staff the farm.
Who runs the farm?
Mark Reid is the current farm manager (thanks Mark!). Several interns from Lafayette College are instrumental in keeping the garden running. The farm is also staffed by local volunteers, who volunteer anywhere from once a month to multiple times a week. We have volunteers of all ages. We have even had larger volunteer groups come in from out of state. Please contact us if you are interested in participating.
