4th Annual Green Earth Festival This Saturday

Phoenixville is celebrating community and sustainability at the 4th Annual Green Earth Festival on the Schuylkill River Trail on September 21 from 9AM - 2PM. See Google map for location.

The festival features exhibitors, food, music, and children's entertainment.

Visit the Festival Exhibitors that specialize in eco-friendly products, renewable energy, earth-friendly services, environmental / trails / recycling advocacy, and organizations that are making a difference by protecting the environment and building a sustainable and maintainable local economy. The festival will feature local businesses and service groups that are working to make our region a more sustainable community.

Check out the Green Vehicles exhibit, including electric, hybrid and biodiesel autos. Come down and see the newest green cars from Ford, General Motors and the Smart Car.

Entertainment and Fun for all ages!
Entertainment will include music and community art projects that everyone can join in. Kids can design their own banners, where imagination is the limit! People of all ages can participate in the Empty Bowls Project and craft unique bowls out of clay to help the hungry in our community. But the clay doesn't stop there! Local service group and community garden project overseers, Seventh Wonder, will teach us all how to make seed bombs. Build 'em, throw 'em, and watch 'em grow!

Free Bike Rentals will be available on the trail through Phoenix Cycles as part of the Bike Schuylkill - Phoenixville program. The Schuylkill River Heritage Corridor and the Green Team sponsor this program so that people can explore the town and local trails on two wheels. Take a spin across the river to Mont Clare and the Lock 60 and back for free!

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.

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

I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail loca
