Community gardens keep neighborhoods cooler, retain stormwater, strengthen ecosystems, reduce trash dumping, and improve air quality. The Iglesias Garden was founded by the Philly Socialists in 2012 to cultivate food, medicine, and community. They host workdays on Saturdays at 1 pm, and free food distribution at 4 pm, at the intersection of Lawrence and Arlington Streets (weather permitting). The Iglesias Garden was represented in the CJI by Anthony Patrick and Lauren Troop.
