On Tuesday, October 18 at 6:30pm at the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center, Beautification Committee Chair Andrew Emma is convening a meeting of all those who are interested in playing a role in shaping the direction of the new Passyunk Gardens at East Passyunk and Wharton as well as several other nearby vacant parcels that the Passyunk Square Civic Association is trying to get access to.
At the General Meeting on October 6, Andrew explained how some of the goals of the new space include continuing the regular “harvest” events that have attracted nearly 200 people in the last two weeks alone; making the garden available for events (including one couple who is interested in having their wedding there on New Year’s Day); and generally opening the space up to more community involvement.
If you are interested in helping out with this garden and other beautification projects, contact Andrew at beautification (at) passyunk.org.
