The Oley Institute is working with the Philadelphia Water Department to train future Philadelphia vegetable farmers. The Institute intends to demonstrate that small scale urban agriculture is a financially viable enterprise. The pilot farm located in Northeast Philadelphia will employ organic growing techniques and follow a detailed farm plan developed by a panel of expert produce growers. The Institute is seeking entrepreneurial adults who are seriously interested in becoming urban farmers to apply for Philadelphia Farming Fellowships.

The Philadelphia Farming Fellowships will be awarded to three adults willing to invest hard work in return for a top notch education in the art of growing and selling produce in Philadelphia. The Fellows will receive stipends and will work 45 hrs./week from March through November 2003. The Fellows will work closely with an experienced urban farm educator in all phases of farm operations and receive training to enable them to start their own farming businesses in 2004.

To apply for a Philadelphia Farming Fellowship, please contact:
