The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society established Philadelphia Green in 1974 as its urban outreach program to work with city residents to beautify their neighborhood. WPLP and Philadelphia Green were partners from 1987-1991. Philadelphia Green’s long experience with community gardeners provided expertise and connections to residents of West Philadelphia neighborhoods during WPLP’s first phase. During this time. WPLP and PG staff worked together on the development, design, and construction of many landscape improvement projects. Though it has not been a WPLP partner since 1991, The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society has an ongoing relationship with Aspen Farm.
