Visit the farm: 1000 E. Washington Lane, Philadelphia, PA
Directions from the Co-op:
Leaving from the Weavers Way Co-op, drive down Green Street, cross Lincoln Drive and continue until Washington Lane. Turn left on Washington Lane. Drive about a mile. After crossing Chew (and before reaching Ardleigh Street), look on your left for a private drive with a small white sign that says Weavers Way Coop Farm. Turn left into the drive, then take another quick left onto a gravel road that winds back to the farm.
Directions from Center City:
Take I-76 West to the Lincoln Drive exit. At the bottom of the ramp, follow signs for Lincoln Drive. At the 3rd traffic light on Lincoln Drive, turn right onto Johnson Street. Follow Johnson Street to Chew Street (8th traffic light) and turn right. Turn left at the next traffic light onto Washington Lane. Farm enterance is on the left, half way up the “block”. Once in the driveway, follow the small signs/gravel road bearing to the left to wind back to the farm.
Take SEPTA’s R7 Line to the Washington Lane Station. Once off the train, walk down the station driveway to the street. Cross to the other side of the street and walk towards the green grassy area. When you see the sign for Awbury Arboretum, take the shortcut up the grassy hill and the farm is at the top.

We have a lot of passion at the farm for promoting environmental initiatives within Philadelphia city limits and across the nation in other cities. Every visitor to the farm leaves a little more educated and inspired by what can accomplished on just a mere acre or two. Come find out what urban farming is all about!
