Keep the dream growing this holiday season

This year we’ve chosen to partner with the Urban Tree Connection — a non-profit that has transformed vacant lots in West Philadelphia into green spaces and a sustainable neighborhood fresh produce farm. Over the last twenty years, they’ve brought an entire community together — making them stronger and healthier.


The Urban Tree Connection, a 501(c)(3), harvests gardens and other green spaces in West Philadelphia — producing fresh, sustainable food, and engaging the community to maintain its resources together. The impact has been remarkable.

Help us keep the dream — and our community — strong and healthy.

Together, Garfield and Urban Tree Connection have set a goal to raise $18,000 before the end of the year to help cover ongoing farming, irrigation and utility costs. (Just $5 grows 500 green beans!)

Raised $15,066
