EPRA continues to support adults interested in increasing their food production knowledge through its Philly Farms training program. Participants engage in educational activities to support increasing their organic food production, business planning and marketing skills. Participants also support EPRA’s community food security efforts including a weekly farm stand, youth and adult mentorship and gleaning for the emergency food pantry. The program was featured in Edible Philly in summer 2017. The training program began in 2013 with a pilot program in conjunction with partner Nationalities Services.
