Keeping our staff and constituents safe is a top priority. As of May 5, 2020: Our Library, 20th Street and Meadowbrook Farm Offices remain closed until further notice. All in-person programs have been paused. PHS is providing many virtual experiences to keep gardeners informed and working closely with our network of community gardeners, LandCare teams, Tree Tenders and others to keep our communities green and growing.
