Over the past two weekends I spent some time building an herb spiral at a community garden at 37th and Brown St in West Philadelphia. All the bricks were found in the surrounding neighborhood, and the soil from the Philadelphia Horticultural Society Community Garden next door. This little garden is maintained by Growing Home, a non-profit organization trying to empower communities to grow their own food on the unused land in their neighborhoods. This herb spiral was built entirly for free with reclaimed or donated materials. Everything besides the corn was seeded, since we didn't have transplants available. Hopefully in a few weeks I'll stop back and see how it's doing. Check out the photos!
