Community Garden

PASD Community Garden 

The PASD community vegetable garden has expanded. In April of 2023, we partnered with the Chester County Food Bank and the Phoenixville Community Education Foundation to improve the program. They helped us upgrade the space to 8 large garden beds, donated seedlings, and purchased an automatic drip irrigation system. Thanks to their generosity the area has bloomed into a true garden for the community. 

We need your help -- The beds have been prepped and maintained by students in the PAMS Garden Club. As the summer progresses and vegetables appear, the garden needs your support. We are looking for volunteers to help with weeding, picking, and monitoring the beds throughout the summer. Students will be able to earn volunteer service hours and families are encouraged to help.

The garden beds are located behind the middle school between the MS and PAELC. 

Benefits of Gardening 
By supporting a local garden, communities come together with a common goal to provide interaction and partnership between schools, families, local businesses, and organizations to encourage fresh and healthy eating.  

The Future 
The Future of the community garden includes a large greenhouse! PASD and Trellis for Tomorrow have partnered with the goal of building a 70’ x 30’ educational greenhouse. This greenhouse will provide year-round in-ground growing, seedling workstations for students, aquaponic/hydroponic learning labs and production capabilities that will allow for produce distribution throughout our community.
