We Did It With Your Support!

Norris Square Neighborhood Project successfully met and exceeded our HIPGive2Health goal to build an earthship-style greenhouse with community youth in West Kensington. We successfully raised $8,252, 103% of our goal not including matching funds from Hispanics in Philanthropy.

Sharing Space with the Community

As an organization, we try to create space for people to share food, ideas, and conversation in our garden spaces. Recently we hosted an informal gathering of local nonprofit organizations that work in Norris Square in our largest garden Las Parcelas.

We were joined by youth and staff from GALAEI: A Queer Latin@ Social Justice Organization, Norris Square Community Alliance, Philadelphia HUNE, and interested community residents for a beautiful morning in the gardens. Collaboration springs forth from people crossing barriers of difference and finding the intersections of interest and belief between us. 

People in Conversation in Las Parcelas 2015

Our gardens have hosted organizational retreats, weddings, rememberance ceremonies and many other types of events. If you are interested in hosting a retreat or gathering in Las Parcelas, you can email us rentals@myneighborhoodproject.org for more information.

 

Norris Square Neighborhood Project promotes positive change through youth education, community leadership, green spaces, the arts and the celebration of Latino culture.
