Hillside Farm — established in spring 2009 at Elwyn's Media Campus in Delaware County, PA — includes a Community Supported Agriculture initiative and innovative educational programming for both kids and adults. Elwyn and Greener Partners have teamed up with the shared goal of making better use of Elwyn's open space, some of the last in Delaware County.
In addition to a CSA program, Hillside Farm hosts events and Lost Arts workshops to educate community members about nutrition, healthy living and a host of home-scale sustainable practices such as composting and home food preservation. Hillside also sells produce at the Media Farmers' Market and is a site for Greener Partners Farm Camps.
In 2012 Hillside Farm expanded cultivation to add six more acres of land, for a total of 10, allowing us to grow our presence at the Media Farmers’ Market and to provide produce to over 250 CSA Members. Additionally, we’re working to create a direct connection to the city of Chester through offering Farm Shares and expanding our youth educational programming.
The 2014 CSA is now in progress!
Hillside Farm is located at 111 Elwyn Rd, Media, PA.
Hillside is now looking for volunteers for the 2014 season. Volunteer hours will be Wednesdays from 8AM-12pm, beginning May 22nd and running until October 30th.
