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.

For more information on tree events, Passyunk Gardens, or other projects to beautify the neighborhood, email us at, or visit our web page.
