WE ARE BUILDING A HYDROPONIC FARM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CITY!

FIRST LIGHT PROJECT is partnering with PHILABUNDANCE to launch a  pilot  located within their warehouse in North Philadelphia.

The pilot farm is the first step toward building a full-scale indoor hydroponic  farm later this year.


Your donation, no matter the size will help us reach that goal.

What is a vertical farm?  It’s an indoor growing operation that grows hydroponically: in water fortified with nutrients on multiple vertical tiers using high efficiency LED lights.

Produce is grown using no pesticides, herbicides, or biological fertilizers – because food safety is important to us and to you.

Victory V Farm will grow leafy greens that are healthy, fresh, nutritious and affordable.

Food Insecurity is a challenge that families in Philadelphia face every day. Our mission is to provide healthy fresh produce to people in neighborhoods throughout the City.

Food, jobs, education and healthcare are top of the list of what residents say they want for their neighborhoods.

Victory V Farm is a concept designed to address these needs. Our goal is to grow produce & create jobs in neighborhoods that lack adequate access to both and give residents the ability to live healthy and prosperous lives. A full-scale indoor farm will produce upwards of 169,000 lbs. of produce a year.

Why is this important? Because people in Philadelphia go hungry every day.

Your donation, large or small helps us grow.

We are so very close to beginning our mini-pilot indoor farm within a local Philly food pantry's massive warehouse, but we need your help to push us over our goal.
Make a donation, every little bit helps and then pass this along to your network of family, friends and colleagues so that we can begin to grow leafy greens for Philly - 365 days of the year.
Let's see if we can close the gap ASAP!!!
