Since 2011, Passyunk Gardens has brought neighbors together through its urban gardening program. Maintained by volunteers, the community garden now faces an end as the land owners have decided to sell the property.
“We’re working on a possible solution to keep it a garden but don’t have anything to report as of yet, says Sarah Anton, Passyunk Square Civic. “The current owners would love to see it kept a garden, but really need to sell and are firm on their asking price as I understand it and it’s quite high. They’ve been keeping us in the loop about a course of the sale.”
Passyunk Gardens is located at the corner of East Passyunk Ave and Warton Street.
