Greensgrow would like to invite you and your neighbors to an open community meeting to solicit feedback about our continued involvement in West Philadelphia. Greensgrow recently secured a long-term lease from Councilwoman Blackwell for a parcel of vacant land at 5123-29 Baltimore Avenue to build a larger farm, nursery, and education space. We anticipate this new location opening in spring of 2016 and would like to hear from our neighbors about what types of services and programs are most in demand as we increase our capacity.
The meeting will be held on Thursday June 4 at 6pm. Location will be in the community room at People’s Baptist Church at 5039 Baltimore Avenue. We hope you will join us and share this invitation widely to your friends, neighbors, and networks in the local community.
Thank you for your continued support, and we hope you stop by our temporary location at 4912 Baltimore Avenue this spring to meet the staff and learn more about Greensgrow’s mission and impact.

Starting in September, Soccer Shots will bring their youth soccer program to Cedar Park. Soccer Shots is a national program created in collaboration withchildhood education specialists, professional soccer players, and experienced and licensed soccer coaches. They use creative and age-appropriate curricula, infusing each lesson plan with enthusiasm and structured activity through a mixture of play and learning basic soccer skills. The program will serve kids ages 2-4 will divide participants into two potential age groups: 2 year olds, 3 to 4 year olds. This will supplement the neighborhood’s Clark Park Youth Soccer League, which serves youth aged 5-11.
Starting September 14, Soccer Shots will run for 2 hours once a week on Saturday mornings. This season runs from September 14th thru November 16th. During each week’s 2-hour time frame, they will provide two to three session times, which are 30-40 minutes each. Session will occur on two small grass sections of the park, which will allow Soccer Shots to provide classes for a maximum of 15-17 children during each 40-minute time slot. There is a registration fee to participate this activity, and registration is online at http://philly.ssreg.org
CPN is excited to bring this youth program to Cedar Park and look forward to fun and active fall season.
