Time to get ready for Spring!
Good news for our South Philadelphia neighborhood: The Hicks Street Garden is now officially part of the Neighborhood Gardens Association, a Philadelphia-based land trust. 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. We still have a lot of work to do, though.
**HOW YOU CAN HELP**
1. Volunteer your time in the garden. A great way to get some fresh air and meet new friends! Upcoming workdays will be announced.
2. Make a donation on our behalf. We still need to pay off the cost of the land where the garden is located. Follow the links on the right to donate to the Neighborhood Gardens Association. NGA is a non-profit organization, and your contributions are tax-deductible. (Important: Please designate your donation for "Hicks Street Garden.")
3. Spread the word. The more people know about us, the more support the garden will receive.
If you have any questions about our garden or our fundraising efforts, please feel free to contact Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-468-2396.
Thanks to everyone who is making this garden a success!
