On November 19, 35 volunteers came together to plant 51 trees in Passyunk Square. Coverage of the event can be found in the South Philly Review. That coverage includes a photo taken by neighbor Jim Bazis of some of our Passyunk Square volunteers (including Civic Association Board President Christine Knapp, right):

In addition, the Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation (PARC) has awarded the Passyunk Square Civic Association a $2500 matching grant toward general greening and beautification. PSCA will be using this generous funding to do a professional tree planting along the 9th Street corridor between Federal and Wharton, across from Geno’s. The funding will provide soil remediation, and 7 “balled and burlapped” Winter King Hawthorne trees to be professionally planted. Those trees are scheduled to go in TODAY (12/2/11) at 11am. In addition, this grant makes possible the purchase of a portable watering source for continued care of street trees planted along public areas.

If you’re in the area at that time, stop by and check them out!
