FOOD FOR ALL – Building local gardens to feed the hungry

Free garden start‐up funding for 50% share of yield
Laureen Blood

“Food for All” is a project of Triskeles that invites your organization to become part of a network committed to helping alleviate the growing hunger and poverty in our area. We will install beautiful raised garden beds at no cost to your organization. We will train you to plant and care for them through the first growing season, in exchange for a commitment from you to tend the beds and donate half of the produce to those in need.

Monthly forums are held on the 3rd floor of Molly Maguire's beginning at 7pm. Note, this venue is not ADA-compliant.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
