During Tree House Books’ (1430 Susquehanna Avenue) summer camp, young people collected stories from their neighbors and grew in their own ability to share stories, and also shared produce from their backyard garden with family and friends. Join them on Friday, August 17 at 5:00pm to celebrate the culmination of this year’s summer project, “Conversations in the Garden: What’s Your Story?!” Each camper will share their personal stories through the artwork, writing, and photography they’ve worked on these past six weeks. As the sun sets over the backyard garden, all will eat together and say “Thank you!” to program partners and staff.
Tree House Books is a non-profit organization with a mission of growing and sustaining a community of readers, writers, and thinkers in North Central Philadelphia. Visit their website to learn more.
