The PHS City Gardens Contest gives Philadelphians recognition for their dedicated and imaginative gardening skills and offers them the opportunity to compete for top honors in several gardening categories.
Individual gardeners may enter front yard or back-yard gardens, and gardens grown exclusively in containers. Community gardeners may participate by entering vegetable and flower gardens, urban farms, parks and garden blocks.
PHS believes that city gardeners deserve praise and support for their work. Winning gardeners and judges are invited to an Awards Reception to celebrate the high caliber of winning gardens within the city of Philadelphia. Photographs of these winning gardens are showcased at this event.
The City Gardens Contest has merged with the Community Greening Award into the new and improved PHS Gardening and Greening Contest. Click here for more information.
