Farming plan in Roxborough, Whitemarsh concerns neighbors

A Fairmount Park project that could convert five acres of a parcel known as Manatawna Farms that stretches between Philadelphia and Whitemarsh Township has neighbors in the area concerned about potential harm the farming might have on the environment and wildlife.

The plan, detailed in an eight-page Request for Information issued from the city’s Department of Parks and Recreation, would convert “up to five acres of Manatawna property to commercial, chemical-free farming.” The plan calls for the five-acre section to be divided into 10 half-acre plots.
