The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society created a vegetable farm in the heart of Center City, Philadelphia. Visitors engaged with local experts in an exchange of knowledge about growing food and the impacts of community gardens. To engage a broad audience, the farm team represented a diversity of ages, ethnicity, and expertise. The farm hosted 89 programs during the four month installation ranging on topics from flower arranging and soil basics, to social dynamics and health issues, as well as growing 1,250 pounds of produce for a local lunch program.
