Pruning Club

Join us for the next meet up with the PSCA pruning club! On Sunday, September 21 at 10 am, meet at Passyunk Gardens. We’ll work with certified arborist Joe Schiavo on one of the blocks in our neighborhood. Our last two sessions were very successful and we learned a lot of great tips. Check out some photos on Facebook, and save the date for the final session on 10/5!

Passyunk Gardens at Wharton & Passyunk is going strong!  Open hours are Thursdays 10-12 and Sundays 4-6. We’ll also be at the South Philly Food Co-op’s garden tour on Saturday, September 6 get tickets here!

Soak It Up! Adoption Program
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 volunteers to help us monitor 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.
