PHS believes in the power of horticulture to make positive social and environmental change. As a community, we invest our time, passion, money, and gardens in our cause.

PHS was founded in 1827. While many things have changed for us over time, our main focus has not wavered. In 2019, PHS adopted Vision 2027, a new strategy that fully commits PHS to using horticulture to advance the health and well-being of the Greater Philadelphia region. Driven by a diverse community of more than 300,000 supporters, volunteers, and gardeners, PHS uses all its activities to advance four impact priorities:

  • Creating healthy living environments
  • Increasing access to fresh food
  • Expanding economic opportunity
  • Building meaningful social connections
