Southwark Queen Village Community Garden

The award-winning, all-volunteer Southwark/Queen Village Community Garden (SW/QVCG) on Christian St. offers a wide range of organic horticultural opportunities for local residents with diverse backgrounds, needs and interests.
Along with individual and common plots maintained by members, there are vegetable plots devoted solely to growing food for the local “City Harvest” program. Other programs include a weekly Summer Children’s Gardening/ Natural Science Program and tours for schools, university classes, and day camps.
The garden relies on more than dirt and plants, thus the members strive to maintain a supportive natural environment. This involves: Beekeeping, Composting, Solar Energy systems, and Water collection, irrigation/disbursement.
The SWQV Garden is supported by the Queen Village Neighbors Association, the City of Philadelphia, the PA Horticultural Society, and donations from numerous neighborhood and regional businesses and garden organizations.
Most important, the garden's success is due to the generosity of our neighborhood residents and the commitment of the garden founders, especially that of QV resident, Libby Goldstein. See our website for Libby's article on our history.
We like to engage with our supportive community, locally and around the globe. Please email us if there is something you'd like us to post on our wall. Happy Planting!
