Our spring tree planting is set for Saturday, April 23, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, so get your shovels out and get ready to welcome some new green friends to the neighborhood. We’ll meet for breakfast and coffee at Capitolo Recreation Center (900 Federal Street), then head out for a brief training session and on to plant the trees. Seasoned tree planters and newcomers welcome!

If you’d like to be part of our ongoing tree tenders planting and tree care group, email us at beautification@passyunk.org. In addition to the tree planting, this month we’ll be working on encouraging new neighbors to apply for a tree. Later in the season we’ll be working on a pruning event, a tree care workshop for kids and a neighborhood tree walk! If you’d like to help with any of these projects – let us know!

The South Philly Language Exchange is a monthly event that brings together English and Spanish speakers over dinner at local restaurants. 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!
