Lawncrest Community Garden shared a link.

    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.

    Planting the Seeds of a Food Forest in Philadelphia
    With its myriad public gardens and 40,000-plus vacant lots, many of which have been transformed into community farms, Philadelphia is already a hub for community gardening. Philly also has a shortage of supermarkets in low income neighborhoods, which has made the city an incubator for novel ideas on getting healthy food into people's hands, cheap or even free.
