How to Create a Community Garden

  • PHS McLean Library 100 N 20th Street Philadelphia, Pa.

Learn what it takes to get a community garden started. Open to groups, individuals, educators, and anyone interested in gardening with others.

The six-session course combines in-depth and hands-on gardening experience with topics such as basic horticulture, recruiting and keeping volunteers, assessing and finding resources in your neighborhood, planting and garden maintenance, finding a site, getting permission, and forming partnerships. During the last session, the group will help to build a community garden at one of the participating sites.
