Kelly Green is a Germantown, Philadelphia collaborative community project started by 501(c)3, Hansberry Garden and Nature Center, to transform John B. Kelly Public School’s vastly unused and decaying school yard.
Sponsors help us to:
- Create play spaces for kids and families, open to the community
- Encourage healthy nutrition with improved student-garden opportunities
- Improve the environment with important greening efforts
- Provide outdoor learning and performance spaces
Hansberry Garden and Nature Center (HGNC), the sponsoring organization of the Kelly Green Proejct, located at Wayne and Hansberry, is a community garden that encourages stewardship of the environment and seeks to foster a stronger sense of community.
