Friends of the Wissahickon Valley Talk – 3/19
March 11, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$10
Friends of the Wissahickon (FOW)’s popular Valley Talks series on current sustainable environment topics returns on Tuesday, March 19, with Social Architecture for Resilient and Sustainable Communities. Philadelphia is the sixth largest city in the U.S., with a racially and ethnically diverse population, but 23.6 percent of residents rate their health as poor or fair, according to the city’s health department. Join Jerome Shabazz, executive director at the Overbrook Environmental Education Center, to learn about its work to demonstrate strategies that promote healthier, more resilient communities in Philadelphia’s vulnerable neighborhoods, with the use of sustainable practices.
Program begins at 6 p.m. at Valley Green Inn. Free for current FOW members and $10 for non-members. Registration is recommended, as seating is limited.
