July 2009


Beautification and Event08 Jul 2009 02:56 pm

Passyunk Square Civic Association is gearing up for the neighborhood’s semi-annual tree planting for Fall 2009. We are excited to announce we received greater than 150 applications from neighbors in our community wanting to green their block with street trees. We expect that approximately 80 trees will be donated to our neighborhood as part of the ongoing Pennsylvania horticultural Society’s Tree Vitalize program.

Trees contribute many benefits including providing shade canopy that keeps homes cooler and reduces energy costs. They can absorb rainfall and reduce flows reaching our sewer systems, helping to prevent backups and overflows. Plus, healthy mature trees can add significantly to your property value.

PSCA will hold a volunteer meet and greet on Wednesday, July 15th at 7pm at Columbus Recreation Center, 1200 Wharton, to kick-off the organizing of Fall Planting 2009. Groups committed to promotions, planting leaders and recruiting for Spring Planting 2010 will meet and greet at this event.

Spread the Word!
Come out and meet your neighbors.
~ Door prizes for the 1st and 21st volunteer to arrive ~
