In the heart of Philadelphia

Located at Tenth and Federal Streets on the northwest corner of the Capitolo Playground, the award-winning Capitolo Community Garden (CCG) was founded in 2009. It is made up of 46 separate, in-ground plots and three raised beds (for those with limited mobility). The membership (open to all via the Waitlist ) includes a diverse and enthusiastic group of gardeners from in and around the neighborhood. It is one of just eighteen community gardens located within a Phildelphia city park.
