SAVE ESSENTIAL PHILLY GARDENS
Right now, The Neighborhood Gardens Trust’s Save Essential Philly Gardens campaign is happening, and we're hoping you’ll make a contribution to support this critical work if you’re able.
Now more than ever, community gardens are essential. The healthy fruit and vegetables grown at community gardens across the city supplement household budgets and thousands of pounds of produce are donated as emergency food supplies.
NGT needs your support to ensure that community gardens can stay open, safe and overflowing with fresh produce in the coming months. Donate to the Save Essential Philly Gardens campaign today to ensure they don’t fall short of this important goal.
