Tertulias Celebration - September 26th

This Saturday, join Iris Brown and the Community Health Collaborative for Tertulias Celebration: Your Medicinal Herb Garden.

Tertulias Garden is a commnity garden project created by Iris Brown and Marian Dalke to share medicinal herbs in the Puerto Rican tradition with community members. The space holds "Tardes de Té" every week and is a beautiful space full of monach butterflies created by Iris Brown and Pedro Ospina in collaboration with members of the Norris Square community. We hope that you will attend this free event and share food, enjoy music, and children's activities.

When: September 26th at 5:30pm

Where: Tertulias Medical Herb Garden is located at 2204 N 2nd Street - by the corner of Susquehanna Ave. 

Iris Brown is a member of Grupo Motivos, the women's collective that began the Las Parcelas garden and has been an extremely important advocate for the Norris Square community for many years. Community Health Collaborative is an ongoing partner of Norris Square Neighborhhood Project on various projects.

Celebrate with us at Fall Harvest Festival (Festival de la Cosecha)

Join us in Las Parcelas on September 20th from 4-9 PM to celebrate our summer season and the cornucopia of a good harvest. We'll be hosting a variety of events including live music by El Sueño Musical and dancing including salsa and cumbia. Come dance with us and show us your skills on the dance floor! 

We'll also have an art exhibit by La Puerta Abierta, La Ruta de los Sueños. And from 4-6 we'll be giving you the chance to find out if your mom's pie or empanada recipe truly is the best. If you show up with a pie or empanada to be tasted and judged by our eating experienced judges we'll give you free entry.

Without a pie or empanada entry is 10 dollars, but either way, the fun, food and culture are limitless. We can't wait to see you there!
