PHS Pop Up Gardens bring environmental and community awareness together. These pop up gardens serve as a meeting ground for locals, visitors, gardeners, beer lovers and all walks of life. This Friday enjoy an afternoon of musical tunes starting at 11am with Philadelphia based band, Ensemble Novo. Starting at 1pm you won’t want to miss the jazz and musical performance “Broadway on Broad” featuring mezzo soprano Alexandra Clint.
On Sunday, wind down with “Natural Craft-a pop up jewelry garden”. Presented by UArts students and alumni, this display will be available all day long with the option to purchase. Inspired by nature, these jewelry pieces are to create awareness of jewelry as an art form. This is the third annual pop-up garden in Philadelphia. This public landscape brings horticulture and the arts together. Offering a variety of drink specials and small plates, this garden will be open through October. Events are frequent at the Pop-Up Garden so be sure to check their calendar.
