Community Garden Coming to Dorothea’s House Spring 2022

The Witherspoon-Jackson Historical and Cultural Society will be partnering with Dorothea’s House and Pettoranello Gardens to plant a Community Garden in the Witherspoon-Jackson Neighborhood.


The garden will be located at the top of John Street, next to Dorothea’s House. Beginning next year, the garden will have fresh seasonal vegetables for the neighborhood to enjoy.


We will be looking for volunteers to help us with planting and tending the garden. If you have a green thumb or are interested in volunteering, please contact Ashley Hightower by clicking here.
