If you are looking to garden in a gem of place, PHS Young Friends are looking for volunteers for a work day at the gorgeous and unique Las Parcelas gardens of Norris Square in North Philadelphia on Aug. 30 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers will learn about the amazing history of Las Parcelas, located on the 2100 block of N. Howard Street. The group will go find some tasty local food afterward. To RSVP, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
PHS Young Friends is a vibrant group of adults age 40 and under who share a common interest in greening and the positive impact it has on the Philadelphia region. They attend educational programs, participate in planting and related activities and meet new friends at networking events. While supporting and caring for the community, they have a lot of fun in the process. Check them out on Facebook.
