2501 E. Cumberland Street
Philadelphia, PA 19125
Mary Seton Corboy, Founder of Greensgrow Farms and PWR's 2012 PoWeR recipient welcomes members to a personal tour of the farm. Mary looks forward to sharing how their urban farm has incorporated new services to support their community initiatives.
There is no typical day at Greensgrow. They have never accepted the idea that “that’s just the way things are”. Instead they believe that’s there’s a way things could be and can make them happen if they’re willing to work hard enough, laugh loud enough and be open enough to learn from their mistakes. At the Greensgrow Idea Farm they vet notions, potions, concepts, initiatives and dreams. They send them into their pipeline for trials and testing. That pipeline has given birth to their CSA, the Community Kitchen and other projects resulting in permanent jobs and sustainable income which in turn allows us to start new projects.
Come hear, feel and see the magic Mary and her team are creating. If you have been seeking a bit of inspiration then be sure to join us. Plenty of on-site parking.
Members Only - PoWeR Connections
PoWeR Connections are a once-a-month opportunity for up to 5 PWR members (including one Board member) to develop a deeper relationship with one of PWR Advisors over breakfast, lunch or coffee. As the name (more than) implies, the focus of this program is connection versus mentoring, though we envision member questions and Advisors' experiences and knowledge as a great launching points for any gathering.
