PHS uses gardening and landscaping to clean, green, and maintain vacant lots. Known as PHS Philadelphia LandCare, our team replaces waste with grass, trees, and plants in 13,000 lots to develop green spaces in urban areas.
With support from the City of Philadelphia, PHS partners with a network of contractors and community groups turn vacant lots into a positive public green space. These spaces create lasting benefits including decreased gun violence and improved mental health.
