Earth Week Community Service and Tree Planting

Please join us in capping off Greene Towne's Earth Week activities with a tree planting and park clean-up at Liberty Lands Park in Northern Liberties on Sunday, April 28th, from 10:00-12:00.  We will be planting trees, weeding, mulching, and enjoying some all around fun in the dirt!  Coffee and a kids snack will be provided by La Colombe, and we will have tools and gloves for both kids and adults. Please dress to get dirty/muddy, including wearing rain boots! Kids are encouraged to wear their Greene Towne T-shirts and to bring a refillable water bottle (extra t-shirts and water available at the park).  Please RSVP here to join this "Rain or Shine" event: 

 

Liberty Lands Park, located near 3rd and Poplar in Northern Liberties, is easily accessible on the Market-Frankford line (Spring Garden or Girard Avenue stops) and by SEPTA bus routes 5, 15, 43 and 57.  In the spirit of Earth Week, we encourage families to walk, bike, scooter, or SEPTA to the event. Street parking is also available on surrounding streets. 

 

Liberty Lands Park includes a playground and on-site bathroom, and it is surrounded by a number of delicious post-event brunch options. Or, bring a picnic lunch and a blanket to hang out a little longer!
