Organic Community Garden

Organic Community GardenThe Schuylkill Center’s Organic Community Garden is busier than ever as we head into the height of the growing season.  The Gardens are comprised of 481 plots, each measuring roughly 16’ x 20’.  One can find towering yellow corn, bright red heirloom tomatoes, meandering flower beds, and more growing side by side in this maze of plots.  Some plants are chosen to attract bees from the adjacent apiary.  Gardeners grow produce and vegetables for their family, friends and churches.  A few will grow for restaurants; others donate to local food banks.  Some use their plot to create an outdoor oasis to escape to. The Gardens serve as an excellent place to learn new greenthumb techniques, enjoy the company of fellow Gardeners, and take in the beautiful scenery the area.
