Saul HS and PHeaST

Two weeks ago Channel 6 news came to the farm to interview teacher Jess McAtamney and her class. Jess was recently awarded the Champion of Change award for her leadership as one of the advisors to the FFA (formerly known as the Future Farmers of America) chapter at Saul High School. Jess received recognition of her honor at the White House last week.
Gardening at Southern for a PHeaST
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) hosted a fundraiser last Friday, October 19th at the Navy Yard. Urban farmers were paired with restaurants to provide locally grown ingredients for dishes that were tasted by participants. PHS is a long standing partner with Weavers Way and Henry Got Crops. Matt and Chris from the Henry Got Crops staff represented our farm at the event. The other farm mentioned in the article, in addition to HGC, is the farm at South Philly High, started by Molly Devinney, Henry Got Crops Apprentice in 2011.
