The Temple Community Garden (TCG) is a student run organization that acts to provide an outlet for innovation and experimentation within urban agriculture. Our mission is to combat the issue of food insecurity within the urban environment by providing the local North Philadelphia community access to sustainably grown produce. The community garden is a public space focused on the development of practical gardening skills. The garden serves as an educational environment where community members/students are encouraged to come and participate in the gardening process. The organization aims to provide insight into sustainable agricultural methods while actively playing a role in enriching the surrounding community.
Weekly garden hours are on Fridays at 3pm. We have occasional workdays on the weekends, and we are looking for members to become involved with our organization on a regular basis.
