Friends of Vernon Park receiving our 2013 Community Greening Award from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, February 10th.  Thanks to all of you who participated last year in the planting, weeding, pruning, and general maintenance of the rain garden.  Join us this year too – when the snow finally melts.

Thanks so much to PHS and TTF for the wonderful rain garden workshop and work day, and to all of the community members & volunteers who attended. The rain garden is now more functional and beautiful. Tasks included clearing leaves from the input and output channels and planting new additions in less dense areas of the garden.
