Q. Would any members come help a Philadelphia public school help beautify our yard & offer other ideas?
We do not have a system set up where we can do a call for volunteers to work on various greening projects not connected with PHS, as worthy as those projects are.
We do, however, have a Green City Teachers program.
Green City Teachers is an innovative training program that enables Philadelphia educators to start school gardens.
Teachers, individuals, parents, gardeners, and informal educators are invited to participate in the fall five-session course and 3-day summer course which offer a forum for sharing ideas and helps students appreciate the role of nature in their lives and ultimately introduce horticulture into school curricula, after-school programs, and service learning projects.
Good luck with your project.
