The Monocacy Farm Project

The Monocacy Farm Project utilizes land and resources at Monocacy Manor in Bethlehem, Pa., in the Franciscan tradition to model stewardship and care of the earth, foster community involvement, provide educational opportunities and serve the needs of the poor. The project includes the following initiatives:

  • Educational workshops for adults, children and families on organic gardening, nutrition and sustainable lifestyle
  • Organic vegetables made available to area residents through Community Supported Agriculture programs
  • Organic produce provided to low-income families through Agriculture Supported Community programs
  • Community gardens available for lease to those who wish to grow their vegetables
  • Increased community involvement through farm programs and activities
