Friends of Cloverly/The Old Tennis Court Community Garden

The Old Tennis Court Farm community garden, located on the 5400 block of Wissahickon

Avenue in Germantown, has plots available for the 2018 garden season and is now welcoming new members.

 

Full-sized plots (12 feet x 12 feet) are $40 for the season. A few half-plots (12 feet x 6 feet) are available for $20 for the season. Those new to gardening can tap the expertise of more seasoned members.

The Old Tennis Court Farm operates as a collaborative effort: in addition to caring for their own plots, members share in the upkeep of the garden as whole, including a set of community benefit plots whose harvest is donated to local organizations that provide food to those in need.

The Old Tennis Court Farm is an affiliate of Neighborhood Gardens Trust (www.ngtrust.org). For more information about becoming a member of the Old Tennis Court Farm, use the contact form at www.oldtenniscourtfarm.org.

Phila. Neighborhood Home Preservation Loan Program:  Restore, Repair, Renew is a new initiative of the City of Philadelphia and Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority (PRA) to help Philadelphia homeowners access low-interest rate loans to invest in their properties. Lenders participating in the program are offering 10-year, 3% fixed Annual Percentage Rate loans that range from $2,500 to $24,999 to eligible homeowners.

Friends of Cloverly/The Old Tennis Court Community Garden

The Old Tennis Court Farm community garden, located on the 5400 block of Wissahickon

Avenue in Germantown, has plots available for the 2018 garden season and is now welcoming new members.

 

Full-sized plots (12 feet x 12 feet) are $40 for the season. A few half-plots (12 feet x 6 feet) are available for $20 for the season. Those new to gardening can tap the expertise of more seasoned members.

The Old Tennis Court Farm operates as a collaborative effort: in addition to caring for their own plots, members share in the upkeep of the garden as whole, including a set of community benefit plots whose harvest is donated to local organizations that provide food to those in need.

The Old Tennis Court Farm is an affiliate of Neighborhood Gardens Trust (www.ngtrust.org). For more information about becoming a member of the Old Tennis Court Farm, use the contact form at www.oldtenniscourtfarm.org.

Friends of Cloverly/The Old Tennis Court Community Garden

The Old Tennis Court Farm community garden, located on the 5400 block of Wissahickon

Avenue in Germantown, has plots available for the 2018 garden season and is now welcoming new members.

 

Full-sized plots (12 feet x 12 feet) are $40 for the season. A few half-plots (12 feet x 6 feet) are available for $20 for the season. Those new to gardening can tap the expertise of more seasoned members.

The Old Tennis Court Farm operates as a collaborative effort: in addition to caring for their own plots, members share in the upkeep of the garden as whole, including a set of community benefit plots whose harvest is donated to local organizations that provide food to those in need.

The Old Tennis Court Farm is an affiliate of Neighborhood Gardens Trust (www.ngtrust.org). For more information about becoming a member of the Old Tennis Court Farm, use the contact form at www.oldtenniscourtfarm.org.

Friends of Cloverly/The Old Tennis Court Community Garden

The Old Tennis Court Farm community garden, located on the 5400 block of Wissahickon

Avenue in Germantown, has plots available for the 2018 garden season and is now welcoming new members.

 

Full-sized plots (12 feet x 12 feet) are $40 for the season. A few half-plots (12 feet x 6 feet) are available for $20 for the season. Those new to gardening can tap the expertise of more seasoned members.

The Old Tennis Court Farm operates as a collaborative effort: in addition to caring for their own plots, members share in the upkeep of the garden as whole, including a set of community benefit plots whose harvest is donated to local organizations that provide food to those in need.

The Old Tennis Court Farm is an affiliate of Neighborhood Gardens Trust (www.ngtrust.org). For more information about becoming a member of the Old Tennis Court Farm, use the contact form at www.oldtenniscourtfarm.org.

Friends of Cloverly/The Old Tennis Court Community Garden

The Old Tennis Court Farm community garden, located on the 5400 block of Wissahickon

Avenue in Germantown, has plots available for the 2018 garden season and is now welcoming new members.

 

Full-sized plots (12 feet x 12 feet) are $40 for the season. A few half-plots (12 feet x 6 feet) are available for $20 for the season. Those new to gardening can tap the expertise of more seasoned members.

The Old Tennis Court Farm operates as a collaborative effort: in addition to caring for their own plots, members share in the upkeep of the garden as whole, including a set of community benefit plots whose harvest is donated to local organizations that provide food to those in need.

The Old Tennis Court Farm is an affiliate of Neighborhood Gardens Trust (www.ngtrust.org). For more information about becoming a member of the Old Tennis Court Farm, use the contact form at www.oldtenniscourtfarm.org.

Friends of Cloverly/The Old Tennis Court Community Garden

The Old Tennis Court Farm community garden, located on the 5400 block of Wissahickon

Avenue in Germantown, has plots available for the 2018 garden season and is now welcoming new members.

 

Full-sized plots (12 feet x 12 feet) are $40 for the season. A few half-plots (12 feet x 6 feet) are available for $20 for the season. Those new to gardening can tap the expertise of more seasoned members.

The Old Tennis Court Farm operates as a collaborative effort: in addition to caring for their own plots, members share in the upkeep of the garden as whole, including a set of community benefit plots whose harvest is donated to local organizations that provide food to those in need.

The Old Tennis Court Farm is an affiliate of Neighborhood Gardens Trust (www.ngtrust.org). For more information about becoming a member of the Old Tennis Court Farm, use the contact form at www.oldtenniscourtfarm.org.

Friends of Cloverly/The Old Tennis Court Community Garden

The Old Tennis Court Farm community garden, located on the 5400 block of Wissahickon

Avenue in Germantown, has plots available for the 2018 garden season and is now welcoming new members.

 

Full-sized plots (12 feet x 12 feet) are $40 for the season. A few half-plots (12 feet x 6 feet) are available for $20 for the season. Those new to gardening can tap the expertise of more seasoned members.

The Old Tennis Court Farm operates as a collaborative effort: in addition to caring for their own plots, members share in the upkeep of the garden as whole, including a set of community benefit plots whose harvest is donated to local organizations that provide food to those in need.

The Old Tennis Court Farm is an affiliate of Neighborhood Gardens Trust (www.ngtrust.org). For more information about becoming a member of the Old Tennis Court Farm, use the contact form at www.oldtenniscourtfarm.org.
