GroundSwell (another project from the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, the organization that powers STAMP) is teaming up with the Mantua Civic Association and the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society to plant tulips in Mantua on Saturday, November 9th! The Mantua neighborhood is calling the campaign “Bulbs Not Bullets.”
The Mantua neighborhood in West Philadelphia has long been overlooked for the active and vibrant community that it is. Often referred to as “next to University city” or “over by the Zoo,” neighbors have been working together to create their own identity. One of these efforts is to simultaneously unify and beautify the community by planting tulips throughout the neighborhood.
PHS and GroundSwell will be pitching in to plant over 4 blocks, and they need volunteers to help! Click here for more info and to register to volunteer.
