Your neighborhood is full of gardening inspiration.

Need a little gardening inspiration? Jump on the 5th Annual South Philly Garden Tour Saturday, Sept. 12. Presented by the South Philly Food Co-op, this year's self-guided tour takes visitors into 29 different outdoor spaces, from quirky private greeneries to beautiful community gardens. 

The gardens on this year's tour are located west of Broad Street between South Street and Snyder Avenue. It all begins at the Garden Tour Hub at Julian Abele Park before moving westward. Once there, you'll get a Hungarian folk art-themed tour program made by Ladderback Design and a swag bag. Jump into the Co-op’s photo booth, courtesy of Albert Yee Photography, before heading out to see the sites.

All tour-goers get a free iced coffee from either Ultimo location (1900 S. 15th St. or 2149 Catharine St.) with their wristbands. They can also snag a dollar off sticky buns at Miss Rachel's Pantry. This year's after-party will be held from 4-6 p.m. at Los Camaradas with complimentary appetizers and drink specials.
