PHS Harvest

Growing Produce

PHS Harvest is a collection of food growing programs focused on addressing growing hunger and food insecurity in the Greater Philadelphia region. PHS is asking our powerful community of gardeners to dig in and plant more food crops this year with extra to share.  Each year, PHS and our 150 community garden partners grow fresh food for pantries and neighbors all over the Greater Philadelphia region. You can make a difference and help us grow and share thousands of pounds of fresh produce this growing season! 

It’s easy to get started! Visit the Overview section of our Harvest pages.
