The Tiny Farm Forest Wagon...

Is a mobile, programmable space for permaculture installation that will be used to teach the community about sustainable food systems, wellness, and the local history of food justice and environmental racism.  When we come through, we’ll cook, plant on site and give you a hilarious information filled show.  The wagon will have:
chalk boards, farm tools, seasonal crops, literature (including coloring pages, recipes, info about the project/permaculture), a projector for film screenings, mobile PA system, a mobile demonstration kitchen, fresh produce, and a Pop up theatre.  It can also include maps or info about the location of gardens and permaculture food sources in Chester and Philadelphia.
