Volunteers are needed to help prune seasonal plants, remove ivy, plant annuals, rake leaves, and general upkeep of the garden and grounds. The churchyard which surrounds St. Peter’s Church at 3rd and Pine Streets is a green oasis in the Society Hill neighborhood and is enjoyed by the entire community for its beautiful scenery and its history. The tranquil churchyard is the burial site for many notable Philadelphians, including painter Charles Willson Peale and war hero Stephen Decatur. No experience is necessary—our gardening group is a welcoming bunch! The group meets from March through November, generally once a month on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons.
