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

Thank You….
