All proceeds benefit Weavers Way Community Programs (WWCP), the non-profit arm of the co-op.  Dedicated to educating Philly's youth about farming, healthy eating and community values, WWCP’s mission is to empower children, youth, and families with the values and knowledge to be healthy, strong, andinformed through experiential activities centered on urban agriculture, nutrition, and the cooperative economy.

The Urban Farm Bike Ride is a rain or shine event.  All registration fees are non-refundable.

When: Saturday, September 27, from 8:00am to 4:00pm

Where: Kensington, South Philly, West Philly, North Philly, Germantown, Roxborough & Mt. Airy

The ride starts and ends at Philadelphia Brewing Company (2439 Amber Street, 19125) in Kensington.

What to expect: Great rides through Philadelphia’s unique and vibrant neighborhoods; inspiring talks with Philadelphia’s pioneering urban farmers; great beer and pizza at the end of the ride; snacks and water along the route; and your own commemorative t-shirt.

The routes: This year we continue the tradition of two rides, one of shorter length (21-23 miles) visiting farms from Kensington to South Philly, and a longer ride (30-33 miles) that will include farms in West and Northwest Philadelphia.  Check back for details of specific farms as they are confirmed.  (Have a farm you think should be on the tour?  Tell us about it!)

Who will it benefit… besides you? All proceeds benefit the farm education programs at Weavers Way Community Programs.  WWCP operates programs through the Weavers Way CSA Farm at Saul High School, the WWCP Children's Garden at the Weavers Way Farm at Awbury, and the Hope Garden located at Stenton Family Manor, an emergency housing facility for homeless families.

Eden Foods, the venerable supplier of organic products to Weavers Way and many other outlets, doesn't want to pay for contraception for their employees either. Some Co-op members are calling for a boycott. It's complicated.
