Community Cookout at the Farm

IMG_8153-2

On the 9th the Farm team of Tyler, Jessie and Terrence hosted a community cookout in hopes of spreading awareness about the farm and its programs. We put out flyers and told everyone we came across to spread the word of our event. We were fortunate to enlist the help of friends from the neighborhood. Matilda, cooked greens grown in the raised beds; Jessica prepared the chicken and grilled food with Marquita.  Ms Sheila helped make macaroni salad. 53 people from the community were in attendance, this included children from Thursday’s programs, the CHA staff and other Chester City Residents. Food was served, some visitors purchased $1 vegetables from the farm, while others went on guided tours. In all, our goal of bringing people together from the community around the farm increased awareness of our presence of the progress made thus far on the journey.
