The Urban Creators is moving into our 7th year of operation, continuing to serve the North Philadelphia community through food, art, and celebration. In fact, since our founding in 2010, the Part 1 Violent Crime rate in the surrounding neighborhood as dropped by 40%!

We have transformed Life Do Grow Farm into a vibrant learning space quite literally full of life with the help of our neighbors and especially our teens.

We are raising money to extend our Summer Youth Leadership Program so we can engage with our teens throughout the year! 

Every year, we sponsor around twenty teen in a comprehensive program where they learn work and life skills through a range of activities, workshops, trainings, and events covering topics such as:

Urban Agriculture
Community Organizing
Construction
Landscaping
Financial Literacy

Last Chance To #BeeTheChange!

We're just 2 days away from the end of our #BeeTheChange fundraising campaign, and need your help for this final push!

With your support, we have raised just over $23,000 (between the online campaign and our two fundraising events). Meaning that we're only $1,500 shy of our $25,000 goal! So if you know of anyone else who might be inspired to support our cause please encourage them to do so before the new year!

Thank you all so much for your love, encouragement, and commitment to our cause, and have a fantastic new year!

Sincerely,

The Urban Creators
