St. Luke’s Rodale Institute Organic Farm

St. Luke’s University Health Network has partnered with the Rodale Institute to develop an organic produce farm located at Anderson Campus. The farm is used to provide locally grown organic produce throughout our network. Produce from the farm will be utilized in our network cafeterias and served to patients, employees, and visitors. Excess produce will be sold to staff members and the community allowing these individuals to make healthy eating choices in their own homes, contributing to healthier lifestyles. The St. Luke’s Rodale Institute Organic Farm allows the network to raise community awareness about the importance of healthy eating and the impact of food choices on overall health and well-being.

Join us on the farm as we weed to harvest the farm fresh produce that services all 7 of the hospitals in the St. Luke’s network.  After we weed stay for a tour of the farm!

The Monocacy Farm Project

The Monocacy Farm Project utilizes land and resources at Monocacy Manor in Bethlehem, Pa., in the Franciscan tradition to model stewardship and care of the earth, foster community involvement, provide educational opportunities and serve the needs of the poor.

Monocacy Farm provides opportunities for volunteers and interns to gain hands-on farming and gardening experience throughout each growing season. Flexible hours can be scheduled Monday through Saturday each week beginning April 15 and extending through October 31. Every effort will be made to provide each volunteer and intern exposure to as many facets of organic farming and gardening as their time permits. Following general orientation and completion of introductory-level projects, work assignments will, wherever possible, be tailored to each individual’s areas of interest. On-site workshops and demonstrations will be provided periodically to augment technical learning.

Individuals interested in finding out more about volunteer opportunities and unpaid internships may contact Bob Drake via e-mail at or by phone at 610-867-8494.
