At the Whitman branch of the Philadelphia Free Library, you can find more than just books. Step outside and you'll find their community garden overflowing with marigolds, petunias, rose bushes, tomato plants, and herbs. After the Garden Tour you can even go back on a Monday with other children and families and keep on planting new flowers, vegetables, and herbs, and learning about gardening.
