Farmer Jawn Agriculture: Influencer

Christa Barfield is an urban horticulturist, entrepreneur, and agricultural educator, but on her Elkins Park farm, she happily calls herself a farmer. Tending rows of crops including tomatoes, turnips, arugula, and a variety of herbs, she relishes getting her hands into the soil. She oversees the growing operations in Elkins Park and at several sites in Philadelphia for her 80-plus-member CSA (community-supported agriculture). Farmer Jawn is providing a source for weekly fresh produce and locally made goods, as well as educational events on gardening, urban agriculture, cooking, and community celebrations like an upcoming pig roast.
