It’s time for our Fall Planting! This is a fun way to help the neighborhood and meet others interested in beautifying our community. We’ll be meeting at 8:45 am at Capitolo Playground Rec Center (900 Federal Street.) We’ll go through a brief training, then head out to plant the trees. We should be finished up around noon and will then meet up for a celebratory drink at The Garage.
If you’re interested in joining us, email Sarah Anton at firstname.lastname@example.org, or just show up the day of the planting. No experience needed, bring tools if you have them or we can provide as well.
If you can’t attend the tree planting, there are lots of other ways you can help add trees to the neighborhood:
PSCA Tree Tenders Meetup
Meetup Wednesday, November 16th, 6:30-8:30 at Triangle Tavern (1338 S 10th St) with other tree enthusiasts! If you’ve been through the PHS Tree Tender program or are interested in learning more, join us for an informal meet-up about how this program works in our neighborhood. We’ll talk about plans to recruit more tree applications and to care for existing trees. Email us at email@example.com if you plan to attend.
Apply for a Tree – Or Encourage Your Neighbors To!
Tree applications for our Spring 2017 neighborhood planting are due November 25. You can download an application here or you can now fill out your form online through PHS Urban Forest Cloud website! If you have questions about filling out the online form or want to send us one you’ve downloaded and completed, email Sarah Anton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need coaching on reaching out to your neighbors or want help canvassing your block, email us and let us know. We’re happy to help! We’ll also be collecting forms and answering questions at the fountain farmers market (East Passyunk and Tasker) on Wednesdays until Thanksgiving from 4-6. Stop by and say hello!
Consider a Yard Tree
We still have a few yard trees to give away from our October event. You can arrange to pick one up at Passyunk Gardens any Sunday in November from 4-6. Register here – southphillygreen.ticketleap.com/yardtrees – and check back as more trees become available.
