January 2008 news: garden preservation, fundraising

Good news for our South Philadelphia neighborhood: The Hicks Street Garden is now officially owned by the Neighborhood Gardens Association. The land is now preserved for the purpose of community gardening! This is a win for the garden as well as for the whole community.

Now, the Hicks Street gardeners can work freely on the Garden... and on fundraising.

In order to purchase 1835 S. Hicks St. from its previous owner, it was necessary to borrow a significant amount of money from a generous donor. The sooner we repay this loan, the sooner we can give our undivided attention to improving the Garden.

If you would like to help, click here to donate through the Neighborhood Gardens Association. NGA is a non-profit agency, and your contributions are tax-deductible. (Important: Please be designate your donation for "Hicks Street Garden.")

If you have any questions about our garden or our fundraising efforts, please feel free to contact Mary at marywb@temple.edu.

Thank you for your support!
