Farm first friday

May 5, 6:00-9:00pm

Our very own Jeaninne Kayembe and Kirtrina Baxter have been working closely with other collaborators on a city-wide art exhibition to tell the story of “all the ways we practice freedom” in Philadelphia.

“Philadelphia Assembled is an expansive project that tells a story of radical community building and active resistance through the personal and collective narratives that make up Philadelphia’s changing urban fabric. These narratives will be explored through a collaborative effort between the Philadelphia Museum of Art and a team of individuals, collectives, and organizations as they experiment with multiple methodologies for amplifying and connecting relationships in Philadelphia’s transforming landscape. Challenging, inspiring, and as big as the city, Philadelphia Assembled asks: how can we collectively shape our futures?"
Urban Creators is exploring the atmosphere of land sovereignty at Life Do Grow Farm through art, food justice workshops and community events.

Thank you so much for #BeingTheChange!! We exceeded our goal in raising $20,000 in 40 days! This money will go towards hiring our teens for year-around work to expand the Summer Youth Leadership Program. The more we raise, the more teens we can hire!

So a big thank you to those who have supported us from the beginning, those who have joined us on this journey along the way, and those new to the Urban Creators family! 

A Special shout out to our partners who made this campaign possible.

We can't do it without you! 




The Urban Creators is a grassroots organization rooted in North Philadelphia, transforming neglected landscapes into dynamic safe-spaces that foster connectivity, self-sufficiency, and innovation. We call Life Do Grow Farm home. We are community organizers who utilize urban agriculture, interest-based learning, artistic expression, restorative justice, and celebration as tools for neighborhood stabilization and youth development. Through this process, we are equipping a wide range of stakeholders with the skills, tools, pedagogy, and networks to take the health of their communities into their own hands, while igniting a generation of civically engaged growers, innovators, and urban creators.
