Help Build an Earthship-Style Greenhouse at Norris Square Neighborhood Project
Norris Square Neighborhood Project recently broke ground on an earthship-style greenhouse and is scheduling volunteer groups (18+) to help out on the project. If you are interested in volunteering, email for more information. Weekdays and weekend volunteer times are available. Come have snacks and learn about sustainable architecture in a unique setting.

Norris Square Neighborhood Project – a Latino youth, arts & gardening organization is building an Earthship-Style Greenhouse in Norris Square (by the York-Dauphin El Stop).  We’ll be holding Greenhouse Raising Days over the course of November and December during the week (Wednesdays/Thursdays) and alternating Saturdays.

This is a brief 1 minute video of what our greenhouse is going to look like when it is done:
