An open, charitable, and inter-generational neighborhood-managed ecology campus championing urban farming, education and community in North Philadelphia.
The North Philly Peace Park is an independent volunteer run ecology campus located 2200 w Jefferson St in North Philadelphia founded on February 19th 2012 by community youth and residents of area neighborhoods.
Since that day, community residents and volunteers have maintained a community farm where organic fruits and vegetables are grown and distributed free of charge to the people of the community; offers much needed after school and summer educational and mentoring programs for neighborhood youth; developed a Meadow and Birdlife refuge and build a Earth Ship style Community School House.
The North Philly Peace Park consists of three integral components:
The Community Farm, Meadow and Birdlife Refuge
The Sala Nkrumah Community Schoolhouse and Ecology Center
The Imagination Play-field
Every year the NPPP hosts the Family and Community Day in the Spring and Philadelphia Urban County Fair in the late Summer.
The NPPP is sponsored by the Philadelphia Coalition of the Heart (PCOH). The NPPP is maintained year round by a dedicated collective of local residents and volunteers with the generous support and active involvement from the community. For more info please contact us at phillypeacepark at gmail.com
