Part of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s ongoing project to document the history of Philadelphia community gardens is the debut of the Community Gardens History Project website. This digital archive is hosted by McLean Library and Archives of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and created to support community gardeners and urban farmers throughout Philadelphia. The collection includes images, videos, and audio stories to preserve the long history of community gardening in Philadelphia and to help others to better understand the meaning and value of gardens – today and in the future. The Philadelphia Community Gardens Memory Collection is the digital home for sharing and preserving the stories of gardens and the gardeners who make them grow.
