PHS Pop Up Gardens are temporary gardens that transform vacant spaces in Center City Philadelphia, creating beauty, providing gathering places for all to enjoy and serving as a showcase to re-use elements of the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show.

The 2013 PHS Pop Up Garden is located at 313 S. Broad Street on the University of the Arts' campus, and brings to light the relationship between horticulture and the arts. Thanks to a partnership with UArts, FCM and Groundswell Design Group, the space hosts a lush garden and Mobile Beer Garden, which is open seven days a week through mid-October. Programs and special events are also planned throughout the summer and early fall.
