WSWCA Community Gardens

WSWCA administers three community gardens, which are overseen by our Urban Stewardship Committee.

  • Sartain Garden at 1114-1118 Locust Street
    (administered by Kristen Wendt)
  • South Street Garden at 831-839 South Street
    (administered by Roberta Camp and Mark Keener)
  • Waverly Garden at 1127-1131 Waverly Street
    (administered by Barbara Simon)

If your primary residence is in Washington Square West (the neighborhood bounded by Market, Broad, South and 7th Streets), you are eligible for membership in any WSWCA Community Garden.

All garden members are required to read and adhere to WSWCA Community Garden Rules.
