Love Your Park Fall 2014

On Saturday, November 15th, in conjunction with Philly Green's city-wide Love Your Park Fall Edition event, we'll be preparing the Park for the Fall and Spring by raking the leaves.  This will take place from 9am - 12:30pm or so on Saturday; meet at the Parsons Building.

As per the season, just like last year, many leaves have fallen. And they do require raking, if only to prevent them from sitting on the lovely Park grass all winter where they will become schmutzy and prevent the grass from growing in the Spring and Summer.  A notable absence of leaves will also leave the Park looking relatively fresh.

This year, however, we will not be seeing the Giant Leaf Sucking Truck because it died a sudden, untimely, and extremely tragic death. It simply stopped working, and that apparently was that.

But truck or no truck, we will carry on.  There will still be many leaves to rake, and we'll need every last volunteer we can get.

Also, if you've been collecting the Love Your Park series T-shirts, as some of us have, there will be some of those available.

We'll also be doing miscellaneous maintenance. 

Snacks, coffee, and lunch will be served.


See you there!



2014 Farmers' Market

  • dspfm_logo

The 2014 Dickinson Square Park Farmers' Market is open.  The Farmers are back, and this will mark the 4th year for this Market, which as seen steady growth throughout the years.

This year we'll have:

Our good friends from Darmo Family Farms with produce as it comes into season.

Our dear buds at Two Gander Farms, offering seasonal produce and multiple varieties of greens plus mushrooms and local honey.

The folks with Anita's Guacamole, bringing a variety of fresh guacamoles.

Green Street Coffee, serving freshly brewed coffee.

Stoudts Wonderful Good Bread + Cheese, bringing a secction of truly wonderful bread and cheese for your nourishment.  

As in past years, the Farmers provide strictly what is growing throughout the Summer.  For example, expect tomatoes and corn starting in mid-late July.  Before then, they have fresh spinich, radishes, bok choi, lettuce(s), several varieties of kale, onions, garlic, honey, and much more; towards the Fall, look for the squashes and root vegetables. They bring what's fresh and just picked, depending upon what they've harvested that week.

This is a really great place to gather, chat with the Farmers and find out exactly where your food comes from, and see your neighboros, too.

Dickinson Square Park features several basketball courts, swing sets, jungle gym equipment, and large shade trees on 3 acres of classic turn-of-the-century park design.

Please feel free to visit soon and often. Grab lunch or dinner at one of the nearby shops. Come and see another side of South Philly, and discover that the neighborhood is more than the Italian Market and the Sports Complex.
