Save the La Mott Community Garden

About 150 years ago, Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth spent time in La Mott (near Cheltenham) fighting to help free our enslaved ancestors.

Now our free brothers and sisters there are fighting to help save the culturally historic La Mott Community Garden.

Temple University owns the land where the garden is located. And although for a very long time it has allowed the community to use the garden, that might abruptly change due to a pending sale of the land.

Please help us fight to save the garden by saving just a small part of that land.
