Happy Winter from SSCG, currently a group of 14 strong volunteers in 2 locations… seeking neighbors of Saunders Park committed to improving a garden and community…
Mid November we dug, carried and recreated the garden on the adjacent property, reconstructing several of our beds atop the concrete of the Penn Presbyterian lot (thank you Gary Ginsberg!). With the generous support of PHS contact Lisa Mosca, we hope to reconstruct the same area of plot space, however configured differently (Garden Layout Post Move) than in our previous situation.
We’re in the papers!
Our Current Status in Battle
According to City of Philadelphia zoning maps, the developer has overstepped his bounds and fenced in about 30 square feet of property that does not belong to him. We are investigating through the city office to find out if his approval for Zoning is illegitimate based on the seeming discrepency and transgression of private property rights.
If your green space/organization needs help…
If you or your community in need of support to sustain your garden or green space, contact Lisa Mosca at PHS (firstname.lastname@example.org), Amy Laura Cahn at PiILCOP (email@example.com), and the People’s Emergency Center if you live in West Philadelphia, or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org and ask us a question. Just please be patient and give us a week to answer, we are all volunteers:)
