Q. Where can I find a garden plot to plant vegetables of my own?
There is a Philadelphia community gardening locator map on the PHS web site. Use the link below titled "Philadelphia community gardening locator map" to find a community garden near you. Please note: the garden owners don't always tell us if the contact information has changed. You might try visiting a garden on a weekend morning to find out more about the garden. Be sure to ask around -- ask your neighbors, your community group or members of your church to find out if they know of a community garden plot in your area.
Another map of community gardens lives on the website of the American Community Gardening Association (see link below). This is a community gardening location database for the U.S. Enter your zip code into the search box for gardens near you. Also, you might check your local library, coffee shop, church, community center or food market bulletin boards for information on locations of community gardens.
