NGT created Community Gardens Day – Saturday, June 21 – to celebrate
community gardens across Philadelphia!
On June 21, from 10AM to 3PM, community gardens through Philadelphia will be open so visitors can explore and learn the about the multitude of benefits community gardens bring to our neighborhoods. Join your neighbors and friends at your local garden for arts and crafts activities, garden work days, Q&A sessions with experts, or tours through these unique and special spaces.
At 10AM, a special event at the Bel Arbor Community Garden will start the day’s celebrations with the reading of the Mayoral Proclamation announcing Philadelphia’s inaugural Community Gardens Day.
