Vacant Land 215

An urban garden with raised beds.

Want to learn more about community gardening and farming on vacant land in Philadelphia? Our Garden Justice Legal Initiative and Soil Generation invite you to come discuss legal land access and preservation for gardens, farms, and other community-managed open spaces. This FREE program on October 1 at the Spring Gardens is open to everyone, including current gardeners looking to maintain community spaces and also new gardeners looking to create space.

Representatives from the Philadelphia Land Bank, Neighborhood Gardens Trust, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and the Philadelphia Water Department will also be available during this event to discuss options and answer questions. Refreshments will be provided! To make this program useful for you, bring property addresses and all your questions.
