Community gardens and grow spaces increase access to fresh produce while strengthening social connections between neighbors. PHS offers resources for community gardens, urban farms, and school gardens to serve their neighborhoods with fresh food. PHS provides gardening materials, access to tools, and other supports to help over 170 community gardens improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods
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.
