Love Where You Live Greening Plan for Nicetown and Tioga

PHS, Nicetown CDC, and Tioga United worked with community members and organizations to create the Love Where You Live greening plan for the Nicetown and Tioga neighborhoods of Philadelphia.

With feedback from over 400 residents, the Love Where You Live plan addresses these neighborhood priorities:

  • Reduce trash and litter
  • Increase access to fresh healthy food
  • Reduce crime
  • Increase job opportunities

Over the next 3 years and beyond, we will:

  • Clean and green all eligible vacant lots
  • Train and place neighborhoods residents in green jobs
  • Restore neighborhood tree canopy
  • Mobilize neighbors and businesses to increase access to fresh food
  • Support residents to garden and beautify their blocks


“Working with PHS brings hope that we can learn how to improve, beautify, and sustain our own communities.” – Majeedah Rashid, Nicetown CDC

To date, the list of people and organizations who have invested in this work include: the Leo Model Foundation, the City of Philadelphia, the US Environmental Protection Agency, Independence Foundation, Vistra, Robin Potter (PHS board chair), Peter Gould, and Anne Stokes Hochberg.
