Dear Friends of Vernon Park,
Tonight’s meeting of the Friends of Vernon Park has been cancelled due to the threat of tornadoes for Philadelphia County until 10:00 pm. We apologize for the inconvenience, especially to our guests.
We have re-scheduled the meeting for Monday, June 17th at 6:00 pm and hope that you can join us then.
We’d rather be safe than sorry, so stay safe and enjoy your evening.
Please help spread the word to those who may be coming straight from work.

A big ‘Thank You’ to the attendees and planning committee of Saturday’s Germantown Garden Fest. So many green thumb tips and beautiful plants (even trees!) were swapped between neighbors. Informative workshops ranging from hypertufa container building to mexican folk art flowermaking to beekeeping to how to create a rain garden were excellent resources for novices and experts alike. The West Greene St. entrance looks so welcoming and colorful thanks to the beautiful garden designed by Vivian N. Rowe of Zahra’s Floral Studio and filled with plants donated entirely by the community. Keep up the great work, green thumbs!
Workshops, Plant Swaps (please divide things from your garden to swap with others! Seeds welcome too) and the planting of a new garden. Please donate any sun loving non invasive perennial plants that you can to our effort to beautify this entrance. Any donation is appreciated.
Help Friends of Vernon Park! Raise funds for our park so we can plan events, plant gardens and keep it lovely for everyday use.
