Martin Luther King Day of Service 2023

January 16 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Bartram’s Garden
5400 Lindbergh Blvd.
Philadelphia, 19143 United States

This year, Bartram’s Garden staff will be partaking in a neighborhood cleanup in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, in support of our friends at AFAHO! We greatly appreciate the hard work and commitment of all of our neighbors who have volunteered with our Horticulture team and the Sankofa Community Farm in past years. We look forward to having you join us for volunteer sessions at the Garden again this spring. We are very excited to serve the Southwest community on January 16th by taking care of our streets and public spaces.
