Philadelphia -- Las Parcelas

Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Las Parcelas (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Philadelphia County -- Philadelphia
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, detailed descriptions of the garden and its history and evolution, garden plans, and other information.
General:
This 6,468 square-foot garden was begun on vacant land in the Kensington section of Philadelphia by the Norris Square Neighborhood Project (NSNP), with assistance from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society in what was a drug-infested neighborhood. The garden's name, Las Parcelas, refers to the unique combination of more than 40 attractive plots, or parcels, each with its own special feature. Wood-trimmed beds contain vegetables, flowers, and herbs. Neighbors built "La Casita" (the little house), a reproduction of housing that existed in Puerto Rico before World War II that with its kitchen is a tool to teach children about traditional ways of living. Market stands enable the sale of produce from the garden, while an "environmental park" includes many trees and shrubs. Brightly painted garden structures (including "La Casita"), furnishings, and murals enliven the scene. Las Parcelas is the result of the determined and cooperative nature of the entire community.
Las Parcelas is only one of many community greening projects in Norris Square Greene Countrie Towne which dramatize the efforts of the entire neighborhood. Neighborhood leadership has formed a group of community garden activists known as Groupo Motivos to help maintain gardens, parks and street trees for the good of the community. All ages are represented in the garden, with the dominant group being in their late 40's and 50's. Heavy youth involvement in the garden comes from close association with the youth programs of NSNP. In addition to Philadelphia Green and NSNP, Las Parcelas has benefitted from the Weed and Seed Program of the Department of Justice, which aids in taking back neighborhoods from drug dealers. NSNP also coordinates programs with Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania State University, and four other state universities that give voluntary support to the garden. All of this activity is directly facilitated by NSNP.

Village of Arts and Humanities (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Philadelphia County -- Philadelphia
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and abbreviated garden plan.
General:
With the help of neighborhood children and adults, Lily Yeh, an internationally celebrated artist, and Joseph Williams built the Village, starting with one abandoned lot in 1986 and expanding into an organization and a community. They were joined in 1988 by "Big Man." The first sculpture garden, with an adjacent wall mural, located on a well-traveled street in North Philadelphia, served as the spark for the partners to transform despair and urban blight into beauty, hope, and urban renewal. Guided by Lily Yeh's vision and sensibility, most of the public art in the Village has been created through her collaboration with other artists and community residents. The vision of the Village is "to build a community through innovative arts, education, social and economic development, and construction programs. The Village aims to do justice to the people living in North Philadelphia and in similar urban situations."
The Village enlisted assistance from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's Philadelphia Green program in the late 1980s. Philadelphia Green became a source for technical assistance and workshops as well as garden materials such as plants, soil, and mulch. As other lots and buildings were added to the project and more neighborhood people joined in the effort , the Village grew in size and mission. In addition to the community vegetable garden and other garden space, the Village provides a wide range of youth and adult programs. Children's programming covers ages 6-12; teens from 13 to 18 have separate programs and also maintain all of the garden spaces other than the vegetable garden, which is maintained by a group of community gardeners. The participants come mostly from the surrounding neighborhood, but more and more young people are coming by public transportation as news of the Village and what it offers spreads.
Persons associated with the property include: Lily Yeh (artist) and Joseph Williams.

Echo Lawn (Balmville, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Orange County -- Balmville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, historical images and additional documentation.
General:
Echo Lawn is located on a 6 acre parcel of land which was originally part of a 40 acre estate. The property has at its center an Italianate walled garden established in 1911 set within a wider naturalistic setting of the original landscaping of 1850-1860. This is set within a wider naturalistic landscaping of the original garden of 1850-1860. The National Register of Historic Places registration form completed for Echo Lawn, suggests that Echo Lawn's first period of design was influenced by landscape architect Andrew Jackson Downing and the architects Calvert Vaux and Frederick Clark Withers in their design of neighboring properties (Downing and Vaux at Algonac about 1851; Withers at Mornigside 1859). The 1911 design of the walled garden was developed by the artists Reynolds and Gifford Beal, brothers of the property owner at that time, Thaddeus Beal.
The original structure of the Italianate garden remains, defined by outer walls of fieldstone with cut bluestone topping. The terrace of flagstone and herringbone brick features a Neoclassical cast concrete balustrade from which a divided stone staircase circles around a small fountain as it leads down into the sunken walled garden with a large fountain at its center.
Historical accounts of the garden describe the walled garden as a less formal Italian garden with softer border plantings in contrast to the present hedges which frame the quadrants created by the garden's brick paths. Climbing roses and honeysuckle grew on the west wall, climbing hydrangea on the north wall, lilacs at the terrace, and ferns were planted at the center fountain.
To the north of the walled garden is a large lawn with views through specimen shade trees including locust, walnut, and maple to a peripheral border of native trees. This area originally featured a grape arbor and an allée of cherry trees which led to vegetable gardens and a pond. To the east of the walled garden, presently lawn with a low stone retaining wall and steps leading to the north lawn, was a pergola and rose arbor, beyond which a stream was dammed to form a pond featuring a moon bridge and a small island. To the south of the walled garden, now a lawn bordered by native trees, were fruit orchards and distant views of the hills beyond the Hudson River.
Echo Lawn was used as a filming location in the silent film, The Scales of Justice, released in 1914 by the Famous Players Film Company.
Persons associated with the garden include: George A. Elliott (former owner, ca. 1860-1880); Frank Gerard (builder, ca. 1850-1860); Mrs. Minnie Knowlton (former owner, 1880-1905); Thaddeus Beal (former owner, beginning 1905); Gifford Beal and (Alonzo) Reynolds Beal (garden designers, ca. 1911); and John and Mary Beal (former owners, to 1957).

Porter Fleming House (Augusta, Ga.)
United States of America -- Georgia -- Richmond County -- Augusta
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes garden description, plan view, and worksheet done by GCA researcher Katharine Mackie.
General:
"Part of the large half block was bought at a Sheriff's sale in 1908 by Joseph R. Lamar, the only Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court from Georgia. Porter Fleming bought part of this tract to build his home in 1911 and the community, Summerville, became part of Augusta in 1919. The Berry Flemings, the builder's son, lived here in the 1940's. Dr. Albert Saunders bought it in 1952 and the Medical College of Georgia owned it from 1970 to 1978."
"The brick wall in front has been extended to include three hand forged iron gates, which enhance the beauty and security of the property. A raised terrace has been added in front of the main entrance. It is planted with a mass of small boxwoods with weeping crabapples as accents. The spacious driveway has been paved with concrete tinted the same color of the house, kept authentic by maintaining the original house paint."
"The pool area in the side yard is screened by a row of Mary Nell Hollies along the drive. Privacy from the next door neighbors is achieved by a man-made berm covered with Cryptomeria which will eventually block the view of (and from) the next house."
"The patio/courtyard area behind the house is raised to the level of the rooms opening onto it. It has been restored according to original drawings with the addition of pediments and stone features from the old Georgia Railroad Bank, which was demolished. A stone balustrade was imported from England. The columns support climbing hydrangeas."
Persons associated with the property include: Porter Fleming (former owner fron 1911 to 1952); Albert Saunders (former owner from 1952 to 1970); Medical College of Georgia (former owner from 1970 to 1978); Jay and Christine M. Elms (former owner from 1978 to 1995); Willis Irvin (architect in 1911); Cheatham, Fletcher, Scott & Sears (architects); Katharine Mackie (researcher and photographer).
