From the Delaware County Daily Times:
The Ruth L. Bennett Community Farm wound down its fall selling season by sending its new youth contingent to the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group’s “It Takes a Region” conference in Jersey City, N.J.
Four city students who worked the farm during the summer - Ah’maj Jackson, Joseph “Joe Joe” Dukes, Khi’Jhane Hall and Jasmine Young – learned about urban farming practices and connected with other youth farmers during the three-day conference.
The Bennett Farm, located in Chester Housing Authority’s Ruth L. Bennett Homes, has been in operation for roughly one decade. Initially formed as a community gardening project, it has evolved into a 2-acre community farm with weekly Thursday sale hours from June through October. The fall 2019 season concluded Tuesday due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
