Among those who helped during Cloverly’s spring 2018 Love Your Park service day were volunteers from Fishtown, Center City, and South Philadelphia. The teachers and many of the students from Fitler Academics Plus also made the trip to Cloverly from other parts of the city.
So, let’s return some of that love.
Philadelphia's park system is extensive and varied, and the activities during Love Your Park Week offer a chance to explore and experience other parks and parts of the city.
From classes to food-fests, tours and, yes, service days, see the full calendar of Love Your Park Week events across the city from May 12 to 19 at https://loveyourpark.org/.
One of the many events is the annual plant sale at nearby Ned Wolfe Park in Mt. Airy. For some years we have coordinated with sister park and advocacy group the Friends of Ned Wolfe Park to ensure that our plant sales are not on the same day. Learning that we lost most of our stock to the harsh winter and had to cancel our sale planned for May 6, they extend an invitation to the Friends of Cloverly Park.
Friends of Ned Wolfe Park Plant Sale, Saturday, May 19, 10am to 1pm 7018 McCallum Street (McCallum and W. Ellet Streets). Heavy rain date: May 20
