City Harvest

The City Harvest is a combined effort by Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS), SHARE and the Philadelphia City Prisons system.

The Spring Gardens participates in this effort by planting seedlings that were grown by prison inmates and nurturing them to maturity.

Our volunteers meet once a week in the evening from April through November to harvest the crops from the City Harvest plots and bring them to our community cupboard where they are given to Philadelphians in need.
