A Safe Place to Grow

The Sankofa Community Farm High School Internship Program in Philadelphia supports 25 students each summer (and 12 during the school year) by teaching them how to farm, bringing these skills back to their communities, and connecting them to college opportunities. The internship program is just one part of Bartram Garden’s network of programs that teach about African heritage and food justice. Through these programs, Bartram distributes over 15,000 pounds of food and teaches over 10,000 students each year - all while keeping the local produce affordable to the surrounding areas.
