Chris, as a member of the 27-year old (!!!) Southwark/Queen Village Garden in South Philadelphia, I love your definition.

We do have some 70 members, up from 53 when we started, but the increase is due to an increase in arable space made possible by our then State Senator, Henry J. Cianfrani, Jr.

Since Philadelphia has an annual City Gardens Contest, we also define coming in
at first or second place in our category as one measure of success. (Third and honorable mention don't count.)

Actually we'd feel a lot more successful if more of our members were more actively involved in community activities: clean-up days, parties, barbecues, the Harvest Show, etc.

This year we will be sponsoring the Harvest Show since the Horticultural Society is no longer interested. Anyone in the Phila. area who'd like to help (It's going to be a huge task even tho it will be a little show.) or enter, please can contact
