If you look closely you'll see residents joining in the IE effort to add curb appeal and improve the life and look of their neighborhood with a curbside garden. Our "Herb Your Curb" project encourages Merchantvillians to reclaim this forgotten hellstrip and create some native habitats that will cool ground temperatures, absorb and filter rainwater, support pollinators, and bring a smile to the passersby. Get creative and join our community sustainability and land stewardship efforts.

On Saturday, May 11th, at the corner of browning Road and West Chestnut Avenue along the bike path, volunteers from IE Merchantville and the Garden Club gathered to get their hands dirty helping to plant Merchantville's first Sunflower Garden.  Lots of fun and learning took place as all participants enjoyed an opportunity to invest in community spirit.

Jack’s Beanstalk and pollinator garden is growing! Provider green beans, frijol-rojo-de-seda red silk beans and golden-rocky-beans were planted along the brick border wall at the Wellwood Park tennis courts on May 4th as a small project for our Incredible Edible Merchantville program and are coming along nicely.  Enjoyed a successful morning on May 19th weeding, planting protective companions - marigolds - and watering. Looks like very few seeds have been eaten by the local inhabitants and we should have a pickable crop soon! 

Several volunteers are worked with Merchantville Task Force and Pennsauken-Merchantville Area Chamber Of Commerce PMAC to bring this wonderful event back to town. Pups dressed up in their favorite costumes, shirts, or collars and awards for best dressed, biggest dog, best pack were given. Mutt Strut will be paired with Merchantville Market Off Centre and all proceeds from registration, sponsors and vendor fees will go toward local groups supporting animal welfare! We'll have many pet-related vendors as well as our regular market vendors. With live music from Lost In Brunswick from 11am to 1pm! Thanks to everyone who walked today. And thanks for all the great donations for animal welfare organizations!
