Each year the South Philly Food Co-op organizes a spectacular showcase of private and community gardens on a self-guided ticketed tour featuring 10-15 unique locations. This year we are focusing on the gardens of a unique blend of neighborhoods including Bella Vista/Queen Village/Southwark/Pennsport (Fitzwater south to Moore, 2nd – 10th Streets). Check-in for the Tour will be at our Garden Tour Hub at Gold Star Park. RSVP at our event page to receive an email when tickets go on sale so that you can take advantage of early-bird pricing.

Showcase your outdoor space!

We're seeking all types of greenery within our concrete jungle — from backyard oases and decks full of edibles to clever window boxes, DIY projects and much more. No garden is too small to be part of our tour!

Do you live from 2nd to 10th, Fitzwater to Moore? Are you growing fruits, vegetables, flowers, shrubs or have any kind of cool outdoor features?

If yes to those questions, we want to see it!

Sign up YOUR garden TODAY by clicking on this link to go to our garden submission form.
