Garden Tour Countdown: Swag Edition

MjAxMy1mN2FhZWM5MTlmNjhjY2VmThe third annual South Philly Garden Tour, a self-guided exploration of the green spaces hidden in South Philly's concrete jungle, is just around the corner. As we count down to the big day, your friendly neighborhood co-op blog team is here to remind you of all the most crucial reasons why you should join us on Saturday, September 7, from 1 to 5 p.m., for our biggest fundraiser of the year. 

First up: SWAG.

Let's start with the basics: A ticket to the Garden Tour gets you an exclusive look at some of your neighbors' most incredible green spaces that you can't see from the street. It's a great excuse to learn more about South Philly, see what your neighbors are growing, get inspired and meet new people.

But this year's ticket price gets you more than an afternoon of unlimited garden-variety voyeurism: We're excited to announce that, if you're one of the first 200 attendees to check in at Garden Tour hub South Philly High School (Broad and Snyder), you'll receive a reusable swag bag courtesy of Passyunk Avenue's charming gift boutique Occasionette, full of giveaways from our fabulous sponsors.

Plus, South Philly Tap Room is hosting our after-party, including excellent drink specials for ticket-holders.

Hope to see you there!
