For those of you spend your days in Center City, you’re in for a pleasant surprise at the northeast corner of 20th and Market Streets. In the last two weeks, that space has undergone a massive (though temporary) transformation. It is now the home of PHS Pops Up, a pop-up community garden designed to highlight the benefits of urban greening.

This garden project is the brainchild of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and has been created with help from Brandywine Realty Trust, Independence Blue Cross and the William Penn Foundation. Partners in the project include City Harvest, Share and Philly Homegrown (that’s us!).

The garden will open to the public on Wednesday, June 15 and will be open every Wednesday and Thursday from 12 noon – 2 p.m. through late October. They will be offering a number of classes and workshops onsite, including sessions on growing beautiful food, vegetable container gardening and harvesting your bounty.

PHS has also partnered with a collection of area chefs, including Marcie Turney, Daniel Stern, Guillermo Tellez, Chris Scarduzio, Michael Schulson and Lynn Rinaldi. They will be creating dishes for their menus that will all feature ingredients grown right in the garden and will also be offering cooking demonstrations onsite throughout the season.
