Volunteer for the PHS Pop Up Garden

Last year's PHS Pop Up Garden

Every year, PHS Pop Up Gardens transform neglected spaces into lush and inviting places for all to enjoy. Combining cutting-edge design, outdoor art, and landscape innovation, the gardens showcase the work that PHS performs in communities all year long.  PHS Pop Up Gardens leave a lasting impact by shining a light on vacant spaces with potential for redevelopment, as well as promoting the power of greening to transform cities.

From June through mid-October, we will be transforming an empty lot in Center City into a beautiful garden with daily food offerings, a nighttime beer garden, and ongoing entertainment!For the past three years, volunteers have been key to making garden visits a friendly, enjoyable and educational experience.  We hope you will join us this year in welcoming our guests, helping to maintain the beautiful garden, and sharing the mission of PHS to create a sense of community through horticulture.

Although operational hours of the garden will extend into weekends and nights, we are requesting volunteer support for Mondays through Fridays, 11 AM – 2 PM. We highly encourage volunteers to sign up for multiple shifts throughout the summer and fall, in order to gain a complete picture of PHS and the Pop Up Garden. Volunteers will receive an orientation, a t-shirt and invitations to events and parties held at the Pop Up.

Feel free to invite a friend to join you for your shift; the garden is too much fun not to share!
