Farm Fellowship

Start: Aug 1, 2020 / End: Dec 18, 2020 / Location: Aston, PA

Franciscan Farm Fellows is a new pilot program of the Office of Young Adults with the Sisters of
St. Francis of Philadelphia. Beginning August 1st and ending mid-December, Franciscan Farm
Fellows will work at Red Hill Farm, a six-acre organic Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
farm, learning about sustainable agriculture from the ground up. Farm Fellows will work as a
team alongside farmers, volunteers, and other participating fellows to cultivate a healthy farm
and grow organic produce. This program thoughtfully intertwines the Franciscan Tradition into
the farming experience. Franciscan Farm Fellows will be given ample opportunities for prayer,
reflection, and deepening of faith through time spent with the director, attending retreats,
workshops, and interactions with the Sisters of St. Francis. All Farm Fellows will live in
community, supporting each other by sharing household responsibilities as well as supporting
each other in their individual and collective spiritual journeys.
