User Bio

The garden project is a collaboration between residents of the Ruth L. Bennett Home and students at Swarthmore College. The garden grew out of conversations with Chester community leaders and residents in which the lack of access to fresh food emerged as a glaring issue of environmental and social injustice. Bennett Residents involved in the garden range from 2 to 70 years old, with kids between the ages of 7 and 13 making up the majority. We are currently in our fourth growing season.
