I'm actively supporting the Delaware Valley Pagan Network, Inc / Phactory, LLC Community Garden Project Our goal is to transform an abandoned factory lot into an urban oasis. The site is over 30,000 square feet of open space, right in the heart of Kensington. Along with the Phactory building itself, this site will be a gathering place for local community groups. The site will include a mix of practical urban agriculture along with more artistic landscapes to feed the body, mind and spirit .
Project Goals include:
-Use of pollinators and companion planting
-Use of recycled materials
-Organic growing practices
-Water conservation and correction of stormwater runoff
-Use of solar power
-Planting trees to help clean the soil, air and water table
-Planting an orchard and vegetable gardens
