Compost Co-op volunteer day and Temple football

palmer-cemetery

In July, I joined the Philadelphia Compost Co-op, which happens to have its main drop-off just a few blocks from my home.

Since then, each week, I drop off a little coffee container of non-meat, organic material and food waste. I paid $20 for the privilege and try to make it out to quarterly group volunteer days, and I get some soil come spring in exchange. It also just feels good to do something better with my food waste.

I made it out to my first compost volunteer day, which was in the beautiful Palmer Cemetery this Saturday.

After composting, SACM and I took hoagies to meet friends and watch a heartbreaking but entertaining Temple football loss to UCF.

5th annual Gaul Street Block Party

What a great celebration the fifth annual Gaul Street Block Party was this weekend, featuring booze, food, a waterslide, games and, yes, a 90s acoustic cover band. (Yes, remarkably better than last year)

Gaul Street Block Party

This weekend was my annual Block Party, the second I’ve gotten to get to attend and this year was even better than last year.

I felt more a part of the community. A few friends and my many neighbors ate bratwursts, drank beer, jumped in the 16-foot inflatable pool, played flip cup and had an all around good time.
