YOUR SUPPORT HELPS THE PARK CONTINUE TO OFFER ITS PROGRAMS FREE TO THE COMMUNITY
Organic urban farming:
The free produce program is supported by the garden and local donations. Since 2018 the park has given away more than 3,000lbs of fresh healthy produce. During Covid-19 the park stepped up its efforts to provide masks. Work Pary Sundays are every Sunday an open to anyone to volunteers for a day of gardening, building, and stewardship at the park!
Sustainable Education Programs:
The park has several school partnerships that provide curriculum unit support for K-12 students and hosts school group visits to provide ecologically-based educational programs that include planting, landscape design construction, composting, pollinators, plant identification, solar power, and art. The park has provided lectures and tours about our work to local universities and college students.
Health and Wellness: Self Care Saturdays:
The park provides free health and wellness community programs including therapy, yoga, fitness, and cooking classes as an apart of the monthly Self- Care Saturdays program. The North Philly Peace Park advocates locally for the community and will engage in a voting registration campaign this fall.
