Garden Tour Countdown: So Much Great Press!

Since announcing the 2nd Annual South Philly Garden Tour almost a month ago, we've gotten a ton of great press to help get the word out. Here are just a few of the great things that some local news organizations and blogs have had to say about the Tour:
We’re into the sustainable-locally-sourced-socially-conscious vibe of this event, and appreciate the impact that events like this have on creating communities of like-minded folks...
South Philly’s Second Annual Fall Garden Tour Sounds Just As Good As The Stuff It Supports...

Philadelphia Weekly (with a great picture of the Co-op's board at the top of the page ;) )
Whether you’ve got a green thumb or the touch of death, chances are it wouldn’t kill ya to spend an afternoon outdoors appreciating nature—especially when it’s for a good cause...

Philly Homegrown
South Philadelphia is becoming more beautiful by the moment, and here’s your chance to take a tour of 20 neighborhood gardens...

Mark Bittman, New York Times:
If you care even a little bit about making positive changes to the food system in this country, you'll not only go on the Garden Tour but you'll immediately become a member of the Co-op.

(Okay, I may have made one of those up but I'm sure he'd say something like that if he knew about the event!)

The Second Annual South Philly Food Co-op Garden Tour will be TOMORROW. Sept. 8, 2012 (raindate Sun., Sept. 9, 2012) from 1-5 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at or at these locations:

Urban Jungle, 1526 E. Passyunk Ave.
Ultimo Coffee, 1900 South 15th St.
Grindcore House, 1515 S. 4th St.

The Garden Tour will be a self-guided ticketed event, and will feature over 20 public and private gardens throughout South Philadelphia. Participating gardens will have their doors/gates open for the duration of the event, and will have someone available to greet visitors, show them around and answer questions. RSVP on Facebook here.

This is one of many fundraisers that will help us raise the funds for a site analysis of potential store locations. Help us make it a success – buy tickets for yourself, your friends and your family! And, if you haven’t yet joined, meet some of our member-owners and please consider joining now!
