“Gluten-Free for Life” Discussion at the PHS Pop Up Garden
Friday, July 27
Noon – 2:00 pm
The PHS Pop Up Garden made a splash in Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square neighborhood when it opened on June 22, and the excitement continues all summer long with programming and activities for visitors of all ages.
This Friday, July 27, from noon – 2 pm, the garden will host “Gluten-Free for Life,” a casual discussion led by PHS’s Claire Baker. Stop by at any time, feel free to bring a lunch, and learn fun, clever recipes that are not only gluten-free, but delicious. “Gluten-free for Life” is a continuation of the garden’s “Foodie Fridays” programming, which currently offers lunchtime presentations about food, nutrition, and healthy communities—in addition to a bi-weekly farmers market.
The focus of the PHS Pop Up Garden, 1905 Walnut St., is the PHS City Harvest program, which grows fresh produce through a network of community gardens and helps feeds more than 1,000 families in need each week during the growing season.
The message of the garden is, “Bring everyone to the table.” As such, everyone is invited to get involved in the issue of food security, connect with one another, and bring their ideas, recipes, and urban gardening tips to the table.
