Support Our Mission


Volunteers are an integral part of all we do at Awbury.  Thank you for taking your time to invest in your community!

The following are our current volunteer opportunities:

Awbury Food Forest: Monthly Work Days

The Awbury Food Forest (AFF), located in The Farm at Awbury, is an evolving perennial demonstration site designed using permaculture ethics, principles and techniques with the goal of creating habitat, edible/medicinal resources, and fostering community engagement in a sustainable way.  AFF is managed by a volunteer stewardship group with the support of the Philadelphia Orchard Project.
