Entering Farmer: #20379

I’m an urban gardener growing herbs and mushrooms in Philadelphia. My farm will be a place to grow specialty crops for cafes in Philly. Those crops will be herbs for tea, culinary and medicinal mushrooms, and micro greens. My farm will also be an agricultural training center promoting self-sustainability for Philadelphia and New York City residents.

We will promote our training retreats at the cafes where we sell our specialty crops. We will train people in urban gardening techniques such as container gardening, rooftop gardening, how to get the most nutritional benefit from a grow tent, growing mushrooms, turning your yard into a food forest, and building greenhouses.

I am looking for land within a 3-hour radius of Philadelphia. I would like to start with 5-10 acres and grow from there. I am also looking for partners and mentors for this project!
