Reason #1 To Do South Philly Garden Tour...

1. You are nosy like us and wonder what your neighbor's backyards look like.  One of the gardens on the tour uses an old porcelain toilet tank as a planter! (And no, it's not mine thanks to a survey of Facebook friends that didn't go my way.) Find out which garden on September 10, 2011! Twenty (twenty!) gardens all throughout South Philadelphia have signed on to be on the Tour. Gardens range from individual backyards to community gardens to parks. You can visit all the gardens or just target a few since they're all in a 5-mile radius (perfect for walking or biking). Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 on the day of, and can be purchased now at:
