Support local wildlife by cultivating native plants, trees and shrubs at Gloria Dei (Old Swedes') Church National Historic Site.

The Friends of Old Swedes, the native garden group started by the Historic Gloria Dei Preservation Corporation, meets every Sunday this spring to beautify the church grounds. This group is open to anyone interested in planting, watering and cultivating native plants. Prior experience is not necessary.

Our goal is turn the church grounds into an sustainable and educational garden space by:

  • Planting natives
  • Weeding & watering
  • Removing invasives
  • Developing signage
  • Discovering varieties
  • Install fencing
