It's being called a temporary oasis and it's much more than a feast for the eyes.

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society celebrated the opening of this Pop Up garden today, on what was a vacant lot at 20th and Market in Center City.

Six local chefs plan to use ingredients grown in the garden in dishes at their restaurants, and the proceeds will benefit City Harvest, which provides fresh produce for underserved city residents.

You can eat the chef's creations at:
R2L by chef Daniel Stern
Square 1682 by chef Guillermo Tellez
Table 31 by chef Chris Scarduzio
Sampan by chef Michael Schulson
Barbuzzo by chef Marcie Turney
Paradiso by chef Lynn Marie Rinaldi

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, set up the temporary garden in partnership with Brandywine Realty Trust and Independence Blue Cross.

The PHS Pops Up Garden also features an exhibit of sustainable gardening originally created for the 2011 Philadelphia International Flower Show by Temple University Ambler staff and students.
