Thanks to all who came out! Here are some pictures from the day. Go team!
The EPX Fall Tree Planting event will be held on November 23, where we will be planting trees throughout our neighborhood by request of the homeowner through PHS and their Plant One Million program. If you would like to help with the event please meet us 9:30 at the East Passyunk Crossing Gardens and join in the fun.
If you would like a tree of your own planted in front of your home, the deadline for Spring planting season is December 3rd. You can find an application at the bottom of this page titled Property Owner Request Form.
If you would like to become a Tree Tender, the fall lunch time series will be held in January and classes will be available again in the Spring. For more information on the PHS Tree Tender program click here.
