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
