The Outdoor Classroom at Springton Manor Farm
In partnership with the Chester County Parks & Recreation Department, we manage and maintain 22 raised bed gardens, two high tunnels, field production and a greenhouse for seedling production. The 300 acre farm, located in Glenmoore (PA) is maintained for educational and heritage purposes.  The Food Bank’s Outdoor Classroom enables us to pr
ovide hands-on learning techniques for students, teachers and the community.
