This year we are pleased to bring back our Plant Sale, featuring native plants, and as a new addition to the festivities – a Pollinator Festival. The Pollinator Festival will highlight the environmental importance of pollinators and their habitats within our suburban landscape with games and activities for children plus information for adults. Pollinator favorites will be among the many native plants for sale from our own nursery! Please come spend the day with us in our beautiful protected space in the heart of Elkins Park, while enjoying the talents of our gifted and accomplished community artisans, musicians and food vendors. Each festival draws over two thousand visitors from Elkins Park, Cheltenham, and neighboring communities.
