Community Gardens

“Community gardens can further unite our community. I’m excited to be able to share my knowledge and experiences with the community since I come from a family of farmers. It is also an opportunity to learn more from PHS and others.”

Community gardens increase access to fresh produce while strengthening social connections between neighbors. PHS offers resources for community gardens to serve their neighborhoods with fresh food. PHS provides gardening materials and aid advocacy for urban farming as well as a way to share skills.

Gardens participating in PHS’s City Harvest initiative have access to seedlings, as well as other inputs to grow successfully for donation. Once grown, these gardens donate produce to local food pantries or share the crops with their community.

We offer gardening workshops throughout the year taught by local leaders in the gardening community. With our partners at Neighborhood Gardens Trust, we work with community gardens to protect open spaces.

Join Harvest 2020 

If you're motivated about community gardening and interested in growing your own food to share with others, join Harvest 2020. This new PHS program focuses on addressing growing hunger and food insecurity in the Philadelphia region.

PHS prioritizes the health and safety of all in the community during this uncertain time. Learn more about our response to COVID-19.
