Headlines: Greensgrow Farms Expanding With West Philly Garden Center
Kensington-based Greensgrow Farms has visions of opening a new West Philly garden center at 5123-29 Baltimore Avenue. West Philly Local says that the group will present their plans to the community on June 4 at People’s Baptist Church at 5039 Baltimore Avenue. It starts at 6 p.m.
Here’s more from WPL:
The new garden center is planned for the overgrown vacant lot (aka “the bamboo lot”) at 5123-29 Baltimore Ave. Some likely features of the new location will be a small farm, nursery, an outdoor classroom space and possibly a farmers’ market. However, Greensgrow is willing to work with the community to figure out what the new space should include.
Greensgrow has set up a temporary location at 4912 Baltimore Avenue.

Major Expansion at the Science Center:
Here’s more from Jared Shelly at BizPhilly:
Currently, the Science Center has 17 buildings on 17 acres. The new project will add 14 acres to the organization’s footprint — but it won’t happen overnight. It’s a 10-year project in coordination with Wexford Science + Technology, a realty company that has worked with the Science Center in the past.
The project would develop the former University City High School site and the three remaining open parcels on the Science Center’s existing campus: 3400, 3800 and 3850 Market Streets.
