The Community Propagation Program provides greenhouse space to the public.


PLEASE NOTE: The Community Propagation Program is suspended until further notice. The program will resume when greenhouse repairs are completed. Please check back for more information.


The Community Propagation Program rents greenhouse space to the public. The greenhouse is located at the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center in West Fairmount Park. The address is 100 N. Horticultural Drive. Every February through June, the program: 

  • Allows people to grow seedlings of fruits, vegetables, flowers, and herbs indoors. 
  • Provides a resource for people who do not have access to a greenhouse or indoor growing facility. 
  • Serves as a communal and collaborative space for growers of diverse backgrounds. 

More than 100 residents and organizations participate in the program. Members grow over 100,000 seedlings each year. This is the only public greenhouse space in the city. 

Space is available to Philadelphia: 

  • Residents. 
  • Community gardens. 
  • Non-profit organizations. 
  • Businesses. 

Qualified participants can rent up to three 8′ by 3′ tables. Growers receive access to:
