Those who are interested in joining the garden are invited to gather with returning members to learn about the benefits of membership in a thriving community garden and discuss plans for the upcoming growing season. Light refreshments will be offered. Because the church will also be the site of a wedding that day, its parking lot will not be available to those attending the HGNC event, but free street parking is usually available nearby.
Membership in Hansberry Garden and Nature Center offers much more than farming an eight-by-four-foot plot of fertile land. HGNC is a beautiful, welcoming environment for forging real connections with your Germantown neighbors. Attend our Spring Gathering to learn more about how HGNC members share expertise, labor, and good times -- as well as more tangible items like seeds, tools, and produce.
The Hansberry Garden and Nature Center (HGNC) operates an organic garden at the corner of Wayne and Hansberry Avenues. HGNC also sponsors a number of community activities including the Kelly Green Project, a partnership with the nearby John B. Kelly School; a Farm Stand that offers produce to the community at low or no cost during the growing season; regular donations of produce to the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's City Harvest Program; and programming such as workshops and social gatherings, both for garden members and for the general public.
