How to Safely Get Your Garden Growing During COVID-19

By Sam Robertson
PHS Program Manager, Gardener Engagement

Just over a month ago, fresh off inspiration from the Philadelphia Flower Show, we imagined the launch of spring quite differently from today’s reality. As we continue to isolate for public health and spend more time at home, gardening is one activity that can bring us joy and healthy food, while lending some state of normalcy and routine to everyday life. And this spring weather is the perfect time to start or expand your garden!

For now, a number of PHS Partner Vendors have launched no-contact curbside pickup and/or delivery services to cater to your gardening needs while keeping the community safe. Details below:

*Please Note: While these vendors may typically offer a small discount for PHS members, that unfortunately may not be accommodated during the current circumstances. 

We hope these resources can help you stay busy over the coming weeks. By supporting small businesses remotely and staying home to grow your own food, you can do your part to keep everyone healthy while gardening for the greater good. 

And please be sure to support our PHS Partner Vendors who will reopen to the public as soon as possible.
