As West Philadelphia continues to experience rapid economic growth, green space like the Wiota St Garden is becoming a dwindling resource.

For 30 years, the Wiota Street Community Garden has been a centerpiece of this block in West Powelton, providing open space and, more recently, fresh produce to residents and local food banks.

Now this invaluable community asset faces a grave threat, as a 12-unit housing development has been proposed for this site, meaning the end of the Wiota St. Garden.

Only one person, Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell, has the power to prevent this tragedy from taking place. However, despite overwhelming opposition to the proposed development from local residents, Ms Blackwell, a self-declared champion of the community, has largely ignored our pleas to prevent the destruction of the Wiota St. Garden.

We must continue to build support for the Wiota St. Garden! Please sign our petition and tell Jannie Blackwell that green space is more valuable to you than another housing development.
