PHS pop-up garden to return to South Street West for a third year

Last year South Philly was lucky enough to have two pop-up gardens, one at 9th and Wharton and one on South Street West.

For 2016, we’ll only be seeing one of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Gardens in our neighborhoods. The South Street West garden next to Jamaican Jerk Hut at 1438-46 South St. will be returning for a third year of summer fun.

More from Philly Mag:

15th and South streets will be a PHS pop-up garden for the third year in a row. PHS returns to the same location as last year’s South Street garden, on the west side of Jamaican Jerk Hut.

While not in South Philly’s boundaries, the second pop-up garden being planned by PHS is pretty exciting. Thanks to a $360,000 grant, the Rail Park at the base of the Reading Viaduct at 10th and Hamilton Streets will be transformed, creating a useable community space there.
