Planting Trees and Loving Parks!


NNA volunteers are the greatest!  Thanks to everyone who came out to our two big fall events, the PHS Tree Planting on 11/10 and Love Your Park on 11/17.

Tree Planting

More than 20 volunteer tree planters planted another 16 trees around the neighborhood, including 4 new trees at Broad & Tasker.  Many thanks to Ultimo Coffee for donating coffee and to South Street Philly Bagels for their donation of bagels.  See more tree planting photos ›

Love Your Park

Our Love Your Park event held last Saturday was a huge success thanks to all of our volunteers!  Big ups to (in sign-in order) Kathy K, Andrew M, Cara K, Jonathan C, Amanda S, Patrick K, Kyle D, Emily S, Joe S, Alicia W, Frances E, Michelle R, Becky M, Rattanak Y, Matt W, Joe P, Tricia P, Ali J and Melanie M.  We were able to weed and mulch all the tress in and around the playground, paint the tree pits, replace old bench beams give the benches a new coat of paint, repaint the hopscotch areas, and build a table area for parents to use while their kids play (covering a space that used to be a trash pit).  Stop by DiSilvestro to check out what a little elbow grease and paint can do — hopefully it will inspire many more of our wonderful NNA members to come to the next event!

A special thanks to Lowes and the employees of Lowes of South Philly for donating their time and supplies that made the day possible, and to El Soto for donating the delicious sandwiches for lunch.  See more Love Your Park photos ›
