HARRISBURG – From Reading to Lancaster on Monday, Pittsburgh on Tuesday, and Philadelphia on Thursday, state Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding traveled PA this week to visit urban agriculture operations that are directly addressing food insecurity, improving quality of life, and infusing revenue into cities across the state. Calling it an “incredible opportunity to travel the state and meet inspirational people,” Redding said agriculture has the power to bring communities together and bring all walks of life to the same table. Redding said every Pennsylvanian – regardless of zip code – deserves access to fresh and nutritious food. The visits were part of PA’s fourth annual Urban Ag Week.
