Jun. 8th, 2008 @ 02:24 pm AWESOME DVPN/Phactory volunteer work crew!
Despite heavy heat warnings and multiple scheduling conflicts, we still managed to attract a totally awesome crew for our latest volunteer work day at the DVPN/Phactory community center project! We worked carefully, took plenty of breaks, drank plenty of water, and still managed to clear out the space by the back fence in preparation for building the security wall across the back courtyard entrance.

Delaware Valley Pagan Gardening Meetup

The time is now, good-hearted pagans, to pitch in and help contribute our share to the DVPN/Phactory Community Center!The Phactory is located at 1828 E. Somerset Street. That's less than a block from the Somerset station on the Frankford El. By auto, it is about one mile from either the Girard Avenue or Allegheny Avenue exits from I-95. Precise directions available if you need them.We are restoring the courtyard of this historical industrial space for use as a community garden, ritual space, and performance space. As the Phactory restoration project continues, we will continue to be involved in helping to open this center to the Delaware Valley Pagan community.

For this work date, we need at least two sets of workers.GARDENERS must study this walled courtyard and develop a harmonious plan to tend it, using available urns and other tools. They need to form a collective that exchanges information and oversees that basic tasks are carried out.WOODCHUCKS are needed to chuck wood: 1,000 huge handfuls of illicitly-dumped trash, mostly wood debris, must be removed from part of this courtyard.And much more! Want to do something else? Have other skills/resources? Just email me! Thanks!

Jun. 2nd, 2008 @ 11:49 am Storms dampen DVPN spirits
We had our meeting on Saturday, May 31, as planned, but weather and other factors kept many attendees away.

Fortunately, Michael and I were able to use the time to discuss ideas and share more thoughts about the potential future of the site. I also had the opportunity to see much more of the site than I ever had before. This only left more excited at the potential the space has to offer once we have it secured and start getting up and running.

Our next work day is Saturday, June 7. Hopefully we'll have plenty of brilliant weather and people out to help us that day. We're also discussing some, "fun only," meetups in the neighborhood, just to give DVPN members a chance to see the environment our center will eventually inhabit. This neighborhood is really starting grow and change; a few years from now, we'll be in the middle of a thriving arts community here!

Anyway, more details later. Hope to see many of you on June 7.

Blessings!!

May. 19th, 2008 @ 10:10 pm Garden Planning goes apace
We want to send out a big thank you to everyone who came out on Sunday, despite it turning soggy later in the day. We got a lot of work and planning accomplished - detailed maps of the two cleared courtyards, lists of materials needed, and a lot of good discussions on what sort of plants will do well in the courtyard.

We also want to thank everyone who came out for the open house, it was great to see so many new faces!

Moving forward, we're continuing to gather info and make plans long-term for the outdoor space. We'll also be soon publishing the plans for our next work day. Carpenters & builders, be ready to show up with tools! It's time to lock down the site, and start building raised planting beds :)

Watch here and on our traditional email lists for more details over the next 2 weeks.

May. 8th, 2008 @ 03:35 pm DVPN/Phactory Work Day 3!
"Hello everyone!

"Our next cleanup workdate is Sunday, May 18th from 10am to 3pm. As usual, wear heavier shoes, gloves, long sleeves & pants, and be ready for a good workout. We've already cleared a large space in the front, and are working our way back to the fully cleared courtyards.

"Michael will also have an open house during that time period - if you haven't had the chance to see the site, please do stop by!

"I also have some brainstorming for my fellow green thumbs - Since we can't dig down, we need to build up! So, lets hear your ideas for creative wall/hanging gardens, raised beds, etc. I have old windows to use as the lids for coldframes, so we can have veggies growing even in the cold months. And here's another idea - a labyrinth made out of raised planters, with herbs, veggies and flowers growing in them. So, there's a few possibilities to get you started, can't wait to hear what you all come up with!

"We have another call for volunteers - the gate to the courtyards, needs repairing, and we've seen a lot of postings for free fencing materials. But what we don't have? Someone with a truck or other means to get them! If you have a vehicle and/or are willing to help out with transporting things to the Phactory, please let us know.

"And thank you again to everyone for their time and contributions, you people rock!"

-Raffaella, chief instigator and resident green thumb
