Garden Tour Countdown: 66 Steps To Paradise

  [caption id="attachment_4125" align="alignnone" width="1152"] It's somewhere down there![/caption] Here's a fun fact... one of the gardens on this year's South Philly Garden Tour is located on the roof of a building that is taller than anything else within a mile! The lucky owners of this home have a view that rivals anything those folks in the (ahem) Residences at Two Liberty Place have. (You can't see Two Liberty Place from Two Liberty Place, can you? A ha!) You'll go up 66 steps from the street to the garden to catch site of an urban oasis that you'll only ever be able to see again on Google Maps. (Unless, that is, you become buddies with the home owners!) See this and other neighborhood gardens on the Second Annual South Philly Food Co-op Garden Tour, on Sat., Sept. 8, 2012 (raindate Sun., Sept. 9, 2012) from 1-5 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at our eventbrite.com page or at these locations:
  • Urban Jungle, 1526 E. Passyunk Avenue
  • Ultimo Coffee, 1900 South 15th St.
  • Grindcore House, 1515 S. 4th St.
The Garden Tour will be a self-guided ticketed event, and will feature over 20 public and private gardens throughout South Philadelphia. Participating gardens will have their doors/gates open for the duration of the event, and will have someone available to greet visitors, show them around and answer questions. RSVP on Facebook here. This is one of many fundraisers that will help us raise the funds for a site analysis of potential store locations. Help us make it a success – buy tickets for yourself, your friends and your family! And, if you haven’t yet joined, meet some of our member-owners and please consider joining now!
