We're updating our Product Philosophy to better reflect our current buying practices and values. Take a look!

While it may only be a year and a half since we started carrying Philly Bread at the Co-op, many of us can hardly remember the bakery shelves without it.

Stryker Farms provides Weavers Way stores with pork from heritage-breed pigs, as well as goat meat, all from animals raised to the highest standards and treated humanely. Nolan Thevenet grew up in the mountainous countryside in Saylorsburg, PA. After attending a local college, he transferred to Drexel to get a taste of Philadelphia. Realizing he missed the outdoors, he returned to his mother’s 47 Monroe County acres to become a farmer.

The Weavers Way Board has reviewed and approved proposed revisions to the Co-op's bylaws. Now it's the membership's turn.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,
When we talk about the work we do at Weavers Way Community Programs (WWCP), we often highlight the quantifiable results of our work:
• 1,219 pounds of produce grown and donated to Stenton Family Manor,
• 382 students who visited our Children’s Garden at Awbury Arboretum this season,
• 18 students with autism and intellectual disabilities who work with our farm educator twice weekly in our newest program at MLK High School.
What we rarely do is introduce you to the bright and inquisitive students in WWCP’s programs who inspire us every day. In this letter, I’d like to introduce you to one young man – Isaiah – one of more than 1,100 students WWCP serves each year.
