Growing Home in South Philadelphia

Given the wonderful success of our Senior Center garden in North Philadelphia, which celebrated its first harvest last summer, Nationalities service center has established a second community garden in South Philadelphia. Refugees from Burma and Bhutan are planting spring greens with the support of the long-time residents who live nearby. They not only grow vegetables of their homeland, but also a sense of community in their new country.
