On February 3, the world lost beloved civic activist, Tree Tender extraordinaire, and UC Green Executive Director Winnie Harris.

“Winnie was a driving force in the beautification of her neighborhood and in the creation and preservation of community gardens,” said Matt Radar, president of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. “Winnie organized planting and work days that helped transform the streets and landscapes of West Philadelphia.”

Winnie leaves behind a wonderful legacy.
