Grow This Block! Our 1st planting event is Saturday, May 28!

Ainé's been growing plants from seed in the backyard for Grow This Block for months!

This Saturday, May 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., W Rockland Street will Grow This Block! Each house on our street will have an opportunity to participate in this block-wide garden planting day! Residents and volunteers will be planting annuals, perennials, shrubs, herbs, veggies and even fruit in their front yards. Residents will receive tools, hoses, nozzles, watering cans, soil and mulch. We will also have pots and hanging baskets available for residents who do not have front yards!

Grow This Block! believes that everyone should have the opportunity to grow flowers and food gardens in their own yards.

Join us this weekend. All volunteers will receive a 5-piece garden starter tool kit and a few plants to take home to their own gardens! Please contact project organizer Ainé Doley at (215) 805-8091 or for more information or to volunteer. Planting location is the unit block of W Rockland Street in Germantown, 19144. For more about Grow This Block! check out our post announcing the new project.

We're still looking for gardening volunteers to work with block residents. Be part of this gardening experiment and join us May 28!
