(That’s right. These reasons do go up to 11!)
11. Every dollar raised from this event puts us one step closer to having the funds needed to conduct our market analysis and draft our business plan. These are perhaps two of the biggest start-up costs we have and are VITAL in the process of securing financing from lenders and choosing the location that gives the Co-op the best chance to thrive.
Twenty (twenty!) gardens all throughout South Philadelphia have signed on to be on the Tour which goes from 11am to 3pm on Saturday, September 10. Gardens range from individual backyards to community gardens to parks. You can visit all the gardens or just target a few since they’re all in a 5-mile radius (perfect for walking or biking).
Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 on the day of, and can be purchased now at:
- Urban Jungle, 1526 E. Passyunk Avenue
- Grindcore House, 1515 S. 4th Street
- Ultimo Coffee Bar, 1900 S. 15th Street

Check-in will begin at 10:30am on Saturday at Urban Jungle (1526 E. Passyunk) where you can also purchase tickets if you haven’t gotten them by then.
Following the Tour, participants are invited to the Cantina (East Passyunk Ave and Morris St.) for an after party from 3pm to 5pm. Anyone with their Garden Tour ticket will receive 20 percent off food and drinks. We’ll see you on the Tour!
Our goal is to sell at least 100 tickets. We can only do this if you dig deep and pull out a twenty (or two) at one of the locations below and purchase a ticket. (Heck, the food and drink specials alone make it a worthwhile purchase.)
