microMEETING #9:

10 March 2021 - 10 March 2021

Tune in to learn about two historic Philadelphia growing spacings that play an important role in the city's park system and beyond.

Greenland Nursery has operated in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park since the early 1900s. In its current form, the facility produces native plants for the City's natural lands management group, with a focus on local ecotype trees and shrubs. We will discuss the plants we grow, take a look at the facilities and go over the seed collection, propagation, and production techniques we employ as a small-scale municipal nursery.

Nestled on the Schuylkill River in southwest Philadelphia, Bartram's Garden is a park filled with many histories. Dan Feeser, the Nursery and Greenhouse Manager at Bartram's Garden, will give us a behind the scenes look at the past and present growing spaces. Dan will share a brief overview of the Bartram nursery history, current and future greenhouse growing plans, and how the site is a crucial part of Philadelphia's urban fabric.
