Philadelphia, PA: Repair The World

Leave a comment

When you walk into Repair the World’s 4029 Market St. location, it’s like walking into a clubhouse turned headquarters. And the reason for the swanky appeal? Every single piece of decor was found and replicated from Pintrest. Aside from being a Jewish non-profit focused on identifying and partnering with local organizations focused on fair  food access and social justice. The space becomes an energy vortex for everyone and anyone impassioned by these causes.

 

So how did we end up walking into a panel featuring some of the coolest urban farmers in Philly? The allure of a rooftop farm  called Cloud 9 run by Rania a local Philly farmer. We were expecting our visit to end with the rooftop, but because of how connected Repair the World is to local organizations, like Cloud 9, we ended up being introduced to a world of people who were only dreaming to meet.

 

Repair the World is more than just a place to hold events. It is a space to become invigorated, rooted and exposed to some of Philadelphia’s most forward thinking, hardworking and justice-centered, these are real superheroes.

 

You can be apart of Repair the World’s staff. If you are between the ages of 22-26 you can apply to be a fellow in Baltimore, Philadelphia and other major cities. You don’t have to be Jewish to apply to find out more visit their website: http://werepair.org/

Repair the World had a full house! Not only did they provide stimulating panelists, they fed us a delicious array of Turkish foods.
