Rittenhouse Square pop-up garden aims to ‘bring everyone to the table’

    True to form, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s summer pop-up garden has a new location this year.

    A vacant lot in Rittenhouse Square is now home to raised beds filled with vegetables, herbs, flowers, fruit trees, a walking path and performance space. It will pick up where last year’s pop-up garden at 20th and Market streets left off.

    The garden will highlight PHS’ City Harvest program, which helps feed area families through a network of community gardens.

    Throughout the season, programs will tackle subjects like edible gardening and rain barrel usage. Tha garden is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday evenings from 5 to 7 and the second Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
