The Mission of the (Y)Ardfarmers is to honor God through the cultivation of His natural resources; to reveal the beauty and bounty of God’s creation to our surrounding community; to provide a place for fellowship and service for members and friends of Ardmore Presbyterian Church; and to show the love of God by freely sharing the food from our garden with those in need. The (Y)Ardfarmers will pursue their Mission by maintaining a vegetable and herb garden, most of whose harvest will go to local churches or agencies serving people in need.

The bulk of the gardens’ harvest went to our sister church in West Philadelphia, Calvin Presbyterian Church. Along with Calvin Presbyterian Church and Overbrook Presbyterian Church, APC is part of a Presbytery-supported mission called the Matthew 25:35 Project, which provides lunch, used clothing, and food staples once a week to residents of the Carroll Park neighborhood around Calvin Church.
