Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Urbanstead works to develop leadership and career skills in urban agriculture with young people in Philadelphia and are dedicated to empowering our neighborhoods with the knowledge and skills to affect change toward more sustainable communities.
Urbanstead started because we believe engaging young people in the experience of urban farming is one of the best ways to create healthy futures and to experience lessons that can be applied to many aspects of their lives. Our gardens are safe spaces to work, learn, and grow. We currently operate the Francisville Urban Farm and Orchard in North Philadelphia. The two main programs that encapsulate Urbanstead are Youth Plots, which is an all-ages hands-on urban farming experience, and Seedscapes, which works with young people ages 16-22 to improve self-confidence and personal management skills while also increasing access to healthy food option
