Maysie’s Farm Conservation Center is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to improving public understanding of the importance of conservation and ecological thinking. We pursue our mission primarily by working toward a local, sustainable food system. Our advocacy, community development and educational programs address the environmental, social and economic problems of the industrial, chemical based, food system and our farm demonstrates some of the alternatives available through a local, sustainable food system. On our seven acres of organically managed beds, we produce vegetables and fruits for about 200 households through our CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture program, which is in its 14th season. We have also started two seasonal Farmers Markets as well as a Farm and School Partnership with a local elementary school. We created and administer the Sustainable Agriculture Internship Training Alliance of Southeastern Pennsylvania and encourage and facilitate new farmers and the start-up of new farms. We promote organic food production, local food production and the development of community around food production.
