A few snapshots from Strawberry Mansion this season!
On March 18th, Green Mountain Energy’s Sun Club program presented a certificate to the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, Strawberry Mansion High School, and EPRA for $40,000 worth of green energy for our new Green Resource Center. This gift will allow our soon-to-be-built greenhouse, hoophouse, and wash station to use solar energy, allowing us to demonstrate sustainability and promote alternative energy. Check back for more updates as we build out the Green Resource Center this season!
On November 3rd, seven members of the Philadelphia Eagles football team visited our Ridge Avenue Community Garden and Green Resource Center through a partnership with PHS. The Eagles planted fruit trees in front of Strawberry Mansion High School, toured the garden, and sampled snacks prepared with garden produce by Stawberry Mansion High School’s culinary arts students. We had a great time! Check out our photos page for more coverage of the event.
Culinary arts students present the snacks they prepared:
Garden salsa with housemade tortilla chips, yogurt-herb dip with housemade pita chips, low-sugar apple muffins, and kale chips. Wow!
