Visit our booth at Philly Farm & Food Fest
Here at Alfrea we’re excited to be creating an online community working to connect neighbors to land, gardening services and local food. To better serve you we are currently conducting a customer service survey. We appreciate you taking the time to help us better connect our local food system.
On Saturday, March 25, 2017, the social entrepreneurial community of Alfrea.com will be hosting its first annual Social Harvest Festival. During this time, two back-to-back celebrations in Galloway, NJ and Philadelphia, PA, will take place. The event will not only amplify the work of those dedicated to ensuring healthy local food is available for all—but, also raise necessary funds to ensure this movement continues to increase in impact.
