NGT has preserved 52 community gardens, ranging from single house lots to our largest 3.7 acre growing space. They vary from food producing gardens, to flower and sitting gardens, to other unique community-centered open spaces. NGT is working to protect a total of 70 gardens by 2026. Learn more about the Gaining Ground Campaign to secure a vibrant future for community gardens throughout Philadelphia’s neighborhoods.
When gardens are protected, the gardeners who cultivate and care for these precious spaces continue to manage them in the day to day. We provide ongoing assistance with liability insurance, real estate taxes, and capital improvements (with support from PHS).
