Become a Sponsor of the South Philly Garden Tour!

We're hard at work gearing up for our biggest annual fundraiser, the South Philly Garden Tour, and we're on the lookout for folks who want to get involved by becoming a sponsor!

As a sponsor of the Garden Tour, your organization (which doesn't need to be located in South Philly) will have the opportunity to reach a diverse group of approximately 200 Garden Tour attendees and 500 South Philly Food Co-op members, and the Co-op’s 5,000-plus constituents. Sponsorships range from $100 to $1,000 and offer a variety of benefits, outlined below.

At this highly anticipated event, Co-op and community members come together to celebrate and enjoy a spectacular showcase of 10 to 15 unique private and community gardens on a self-guided walking tour. This year's tour, to be held Saturday, September 7, from 1 to 5 p.m., focuses on the gardens of the South Broad Street corridor (Washington to Snyder, 11th to 17th); ticket-holders will start their green journey at our Garden Tour Hub at South Philly High School, where various local vendors will offer refreshments and family-friendly activities will be ongoing throughout the day. (Check out photos of last year's tour here.)

Sponsorship funds will not only cover the costs of the Garden Tour and our other programs and events, but will directly support plans to open the store including funds for our member loan coordinator and site analysis. In short, sponsors can directly influence the opening of the store!

Our ambitious deadline for securing sponsors is July 1, so if you're interested in a sponsorship opportunity, email events@southphillyfoodcoop.org today!
