Pleasant Playground Community Garden Spring Ground Breaking
Neighbors in the Mount Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia have been organizing to create a new community garden at Pleasant Playground located at 6757 Chew Avenue.
The Pleasant Playground Community Garden will be a place where neighbors of all ages and demographics can come together to grow our community while growing food. The garden will increase access to healthy food, provide educational opportunities to learn organic food production, promote physical activity and health, and create a shared green space for neighbors to commune, connect with the environment and share their gardening experiences.
In November 2019, the City of Philadelphia approved the community’s plans for the garden! We are inviting the community to attend the Pleasant Playground Community Garden Spring Ground-Breaking Event on Saturday March 7th, 9AM – 11AM to learn about the garden, take a tour, sign up for a garden bed and donate to the garden fund.
We have kicked off our fundraiser with the goal of $20K in order to break ground this spring.
Donations go directly to the Pleasant Playground Garden Fund cared by the Pleasant Playground Advisory Council to support the build-out and sustainment of the garden as well as events and programming. Donations can be made at the https://www.gofundme.com/f/pleasant-playground-community-garden today.
