Join our Moving Day!

Sloan St Community Garden Moving Workday
Sat Dec 8th @ 12noon
Join Us!!!

On Saturday Dec 8th at 12:00 noon, Sloan St Community Garden will be moving all of our beds, perrenials and field stone to the property next door.
After roughly 10 years of existence, the developer who bought the property out from under us in a sheriff’s sale has given us a letter to vacate by Dec 15th and luckily the owner of the adjacent property has agreed to let us move in! In order to salvage what we have created, we need YOUR HELP.
Please lend a hand, if you can…
E-mail sloanstcommunitygarden@gmail.com if you have questions or to confirm your attendance, or just show up!img_5296OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

By the way, it’s official, on Jan 4th, 2012  the Zoning Board voted “yes” for the developer to dig up 1/2 the garden and build a house. This is sad but expected news. So expected that we have an agreement with Penn Presbyterian Medical Center to move as much as we can over to their side of the property and explore productive landscaping in lieu of finding additional land. At the end of our 2012 season, we will have a celebration in thanks to our supporters, community and partners.

Grown on Sloan – Postponed!

Stay tuned for our next Farmer’s Market scheduled to happen in the fall.

The good news is, with the help of Pennsylvania Presbyterian Medical Center and Councilwoman Blackwell’s office, we have been able to negotiate another year at our current location to give us more time to move.

What’s up? I thought you were moving?!

For those curious about our quest for land permanency, we have negotiated a building halt until next summer with the support of Councilwoman Blackwell’s office & Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. In the meantime we are preparing to move  to the Pennsylvania Presbyterian Medical Center’s property which constitutes 2/3 of the current garden land.  While leasing this land, we intend to become a 501c3, fund raise, and scout and purchase our own land with the help of PHS. Big thanks to Gary Ginsberg and Penn Presby’s legal team, Martin Cabry, Director of Zoning in Councilwoman Blackwell’s office, and garden members Stuart and Haley.
