Ivy Ridge Green had the great pleasure of joining our friends in Lower Merion for an ambitious session of tree planting this weekend. (Apparently both sides of the river are pulling long hours this spring.) The Cynwyd Heritage Trail — Ivy Ridge by another name, just across the Manayunk Bridge — has 270 new trees, courtesy of PHS, the Township, and hundreds of volunteers.
The good people at Penn Mitzvah planted five bare-root crab apple trees along the Barmouth entrance to the station; a lot of fun and new experience for all of us.
Thanks to Penn Mitzvah for the great work, to the Friends of Cynwyd Heritage Trail for the hospitality and tree planting lessons, and to Bruce Reed and the Township for leading the way on what we hope will be a trail that will better-link our two communities. We hope to see a lot more of you on both sides of the river.
