The Awbury Agricultural Village is a collaborative demonstration project focused on urban agriculture, horticulture, and food systems education located on Awbury’s "Northwest Tract" - a 16-acre plot of land separated from the rest of the Arboretum by Washington Lane. See Map.
The Awbury Agricultural Village hosts a vibrant mix of institutional and private partners including the Awbury Garden Club, KJK Associates, Weaver’s Way Farm, Weaver’s Way Community Programs, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, and Penn State Cooperative Extension. The Ag. Village partners are linked by a shared infrastructure which includes teaching areas, greenhouses, roadways, and water service.
Through the management and interpretation of the landscape surrounding the production and education areas at the Agricultural Village, Awbury Arboretum seeks to support and further the good work of our partners, and empower our community through the use of our landscape.
Visitors to Awbury are invited to walk through the Agricultural Village and see what’s growing. Entrance located off of Washington Lane between Chew and Ardleigh Streets. Look for the green Awbury Agricultural Village Banner. After entering, turn left to follow the dirt road back to the Agricultural Village.
