We’ve had multiple people reach out about helping with watering the plants and flowers that were planted during the playground build. We are going to attempt to put a schedule together so please let us know if you are willing and able to be part of the watering plan.

Our June meeting is tonight at Philadelphia Brewing Co. at 6:30 PM! Bring a neighbor, grab a beer and learn more about our work in East Kensington! https://mailchi.mp/af7e4994aa1c/ekna-april-meetings-and-events-3356145

    EKNA June Meeting Tonight!
    This past summer EKNA and Friends of Letterly Green worked with Councilman Squilla and the City to successfully preserve the green space Green at the corner of Letterly and Amber Streets. We have half the money we need for the park renovation from the Cedar Hill Foundation but now we need our community to get us the rest of the way to a full renovation.
