The Crease Street Garden Board is investigating the prospects of buying the land occupied by the Garden. The land is currently owned by Mike and Meaghan Kind, and they have invited the Garden Board to purchase the Land. Were the Garden Board to purchase the land, title to the land would likely be held by the Neighborhood Gardens Trust, (NGT), an organization affiliated with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society.
On Thursday, October 8th, two representatives from NGT visited the Garden and met the Garden Board and about 20 individuals who are supportive of the long-term preservation of the Crease Street Garden. The discussion focused on the history of the Garden, the current management and fund-raising practices, and the likely funding sources available to fund the purchase of the land, with a particular focus on the ‘local buy-in’ required by each funding source.
