Do you want to learn some Spanish? Would you like to meet Spanish-speaking neighbors and help them to learn English, while supporting a local Mexican restaurant and building community in Passyunk Square? If so, stay tuned on our Facebook page and for details on our next Language Exchange event! We generally meet one Thursday evening each month at a local restaurant to socialize and chat. This event is open to everyone and is informal and fun. If you come, you can order food or not, and you will be made to feel welcome!

UPDATE: This month’s Language Exchange will take place at 7 pm on Thursday, December 18 at Taqueria La Veracruzana Restaurant (908 Washington Ave).

stormwatergardenSoak It Up! Adoption Program – Volunteers Needed!

PSCA is working with the Philadelphia Water Department this year to ensure that stormwater management installations in our neighborhood – the planters and rain garden at Columbus Square Park, the planter outside the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center, the tree trench on 12th Street between Dickinson and Tasker, and the tree trench on 10th Street between Wilder and Reed – are as beautiful as they are effective in keeping our water clean. We’re looking for extra volunteers to help us monitor these sites. Being a monitor is as easy as submitting an online form each week to report on the condition of these sites. If you are interested in helping out, please email for more information. You can also read more about PWD’s innovative Green Cities, Clean Waters initiative at their website.
