About Greater Philadelphia Gardens
Greater Philadelphia Gardens is a nonprofit collaboration that serves to raise awareness of the Greater Philadelphia region’s rich horticulture and visitation to member public gardens and arboreta. The organization offers a central online resource for visitors and followers to easily find member public garden information and events on their collaborative website, www.GreaterPhiladelphiaGardens.org, and in their weekly web newsletter and on Facebook.
In the early 1980s, several public garden leaders volunteered together to jointly promote all area public gardens and encourage visitors. That public garden collaborative was one of the first of its kind in the country.
Re-established in 2007 under new leadership and executive committee, Greater Philadelphia Gardens’ now has over 30 public garden members in the tri-state area that attract over three million visitors each year. As the host to more public gardens and arboreta than anywhere else on the continent, as well as much of the nation’s horticultural history, the region is internationally recognized and promoted by the consortium as “America’s Garden Capital.”
