Organic Community Garden at the Penrose Strawbridge House

Its Gardening time again. HPHA has a small, organic garden and any member is welcome to join us either to just help our or raise your own crops!

We have a small organic community garden at the Penrose Strawbridge House than we cultivate from the spring into the fall.

The end of March is time to start planting our vegetable and flower gardens. We tilled the field in the fall and added good compost, and will till it again in April.

We will then plant early vegetables such as lettuce, broccoli, peas and chard.



Any HPHA member can plant their own little farm or just come out and help. Please Contact Us if you'd like to join head gardener Marion Heckler and be a farmer and grow your own delicious, organic produce.

What's New in the Garden
