Food: Five Community Gardens Enriching Philadelphia

Located on the corner of West Girard Avenue and North 20th Street, the Girard Garden has an array of devoted members from all walks of life that ensure its continued success and sustainability. The numerous events held at the garden throughout the year cultivate a community atmosphere.

    Food: Five Community Gardens Enriching Philadelphia
    Community gardens are spreading like weeds throughout Philadelphia. These beautiful green spaces ensure sustainable, fresh produce in a concrete jungle and provide a refreshing feel to a metropolitan area. Not only do these open spaces equip their communities with healthy food options, they also improve the daily quality of people's lives and give them opportunities to learn about technical gardening.
