    City failing to deliver on community garden promises
    Community gardening is a labor of love and patience. On scraps of reclaimed vacant land scattered across Philadelphia, people of all incomes and hues work hard during the growing season knowing that at the end of the day there's always satisfaction - a new sprout, a new friend, a moment of peace or food for the table.

    Philly's urban gardeners are under siege from gentrification. Here's what they're doing about it
    A few years ago, Elmira Smith and her Kensington neighbors got tired of looking at the vacant lot on their block, an overgrown tangle of weeds and trash, and decided to take action. So, they did what good neighbors do.
