Purchase your copy of Private Gardens of Philadelphia, 50% of the proceeds benefit MALT!

by Nicole Juday, Photographs by Rob Cardillo

This magnificent book is a lovely compliment to our tour. The first-ever coffee table book on Philadelphia’s private gardens! Inspiring photos and expert writing spotlight select private gardens, where horticultural pride is part of the region’s land history.

In Philadelphia and its surrounding counties, the reader will visit 21 private gardens behind tall hedges, down quiet lanes, or tucked into bustling neighborhoods. Here, gardening knowledge and plants themselves have been passed down through generations, culminating in a wonderful depth of expression from the artists, designers, writers, conservators, and other experts whose gardens are included. This book will inspire anyone who loves beauty to create more of it in their lives.

Pre-ordered books will be signed by the Author Nicole Juday and Photographer Rob Cardillo. They are generously donating 50% of the book’s proceeds to Mt. Airy Learning Tree.

Last day to pre-order books is May 21. Cost of the book is $60, and you can pick it up at the tour.
