Rachael Ray came to town and set up a garden.
But that’s only part of the story.
When the Rachael Ray Show arrived in South Philly today, the crew had already set up a flourishing urban garden at Wharton and Passyunk. Complete with two murals, the garden will appear in the show as the backdrop for a one-day grilling contest.
And after all that work to set it up, the show is leaving the garden behind, in the care of Camden City Garden Club.
Yes, a Camden organization will tend the garden. That sparked some questions from our readers, which led to a productive dialogue in our comments section about who should be involved.
That’s how we now know not only will the garden bring a little green to the intersection better known for hosting Pat’s and Geno’s, but the Passyunk Square Civic Association is already diving in to help.
It pays to be curious.
