Ruth Bennett Community Farm is an educational farm and environmental education center located in Chester, PA. Recognizing the need for greater food security and community health over the past decade, the Chester Housing Authority (CHA) created a two-acre community farm on vacant land at the Ruth L. Bennett Homes. We are dedicated to improving access to nutrient dense foods at affordable prices to residents of Chester. We also provide opportunities for residents of the housing authority and interested public to participate in health and wellness activities, job-readiness and beginning farmer training.  We seek to promote a thriving and diverse environmental ecosystem for community members to enjoy.
