Photo Documentary with Henry Got Crops!

Earlier this summer local photographer Dave Tavani visited our farm as part of his urban farm tour. He is a freelance photographer based in Philadelphia and wanted to document local food production within the city limits. He put together a photo documentary of a handful of farms in Philadelphia, including our very own. The photo collection includes voice recordings and images not only from Henry Got Crops!, but also Weavers Way Farm at Awbury Arboretum, Seeds for Learning Farm at MLK High School, Greens Grow Farm in Kensington, the Wyck historical garden in Germantown and Mill Creek Farm in West Philadelphia.

See the web address below, or search “Dave Tavani” and then click on “Farming the City.” You can then click on the Henry Got Crops chapter. You will even hear some of your fellow shareholders’ voices talking about their experience with the CSA. I encourage you all to check it out! He has done an excellent job of portraying the many different examples of urban agriculture right here in Philadelphia.
