November 23rd – 9:30 AM – East Passyunk Crossing Gardens at Neumann Goretti High School

Please join us in beautifying our neighborhood on our semi annual Tree Tenders planting event. In partnership with the Philadelphia Horticultural Society we will be planting trees around the neighborhood to help make it more beautiful and environmentally sound. No experience needed! We will provide some brief training prior to the event, break out into groups and plant some trees. There will be a TBD after party when the event is over.
