The landscape of gardening in Philadelphia is changing.
A STRONG GRASSROOTS GARDENER NETWORK CAN INFLUENCE HOW THAT HAPPENS
· The City is changing how it makes land accessible to gardeners and others – and we need new ways to preserve gardens on vacant and abandoned land.
· A bill in Harrisburg could allow Philadelphia to create a land bank to manage vacant land.
· The Zoning Code is changing to include urban gardening and farming and the Planning Commission has started a district planning process and needs vocal community input from gardeners.
