Fall is a time to pause, plan, and reflect. Over the past year we have worked hard to establish Philadelphia’s first rooftop farm. We have written numerous grants, raised thousands or dollars, and introduced so many people to the important issues around rooftop farming. And although we have not found a rooftop site or grown the produce we were hoping this season there is still a tremendous amount of interest in our project and a drive to succeed.
So like all other farmers we will take this winter to reconsider, to gain support and finances, to plan for our upcoming season.
We want to highlight a few of the really amazing events of this season :
The Cloud 9 Fundraiser at SHARE
Cloud 9 Workdays at SHARE
The Cloud 9 photos being included in photographer Albert Yee’s Farms that Feed You exhibit at Wedge and Fig restaurant
Cloud 9 Fundraisers at Studio 34 Yoga Studio in West Philadelphia, PA
The Quaker Leadership Scholars Program alumni panel at Guilford College in Greensboro, NC
The loving support of friends and family who have helped us every step along the way. ! We love you.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE UPDATES FOR CLOUD 9 ROOFTOP FARM!
