It’s springtime, that means time to plant! The PSCA will be holding our annual plant sale at Urban Jungle, 1526-30 E Passyunk Ave, on Saturday May 4th from 10-2pm. A portion of the sales will benefit the work of the Passyunk Square Civic Association. Urban Jungle, a sponsor of PSCA, offers beautiful plants and knowledgeable expertise to help you create your urban gardens.

Please send your thoughts about what you would like to see in the park to columbussquarepark@gmail.com. Your feedback will be included and given to the CDC design team along with the input from the task force, made up of community members, who will be working with this design team.

Beautification and Trees03 Apr 2013 08:36 am

Meet at Capitolo Playground, 9th and Federal
8:45 am with after party at Fountain Porter

We’re teaming up with our neighbors at East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association (EPX) to do a combined planting event this Spring.  We’ve got over 50 trees to plant, including quite a few at Jackson School. We’ll need lots of help so spread the word.

Bring and shovel and gloves if you have them, or we’ll have some to lend. Send us an email at beautification@passyunk.org and let us know you’re coming or RSVP on Facebook.

If you’re getting a new tree, or have one from one from our recent planting, we encourage you to visit PHS’s guide to caring for your tree.  Watering is very import in the first year after planting, so give that tree a drink!
