A vacant lot in the heart of Center City’s Rittenhouse Square neighborhood has been transformed by PHS into a temporary public garden and gathering place. The garden features a communal table that emphasizes the need for healthy food for all and calls on us to "bring everyone to the table." Visitors will find raised beds brimming with vegetables, herbs, annuals, and perennials; fruit trees and shrubs; a tranquil urban meadow of grasses and wildflowers bordered by a walking path; and small event and performance spaces. Programs will include children's activities presented by the Academy of Natural Sciences, talks and demonstrations on gardening by PHS staff, presentations by Rittenhouse Row businesses, and special events and celebrations. Check this calendar by date for program information.
