 April 21, 2010 – Philadelphia, PA – In celebration of Earth Day, The Partnership CDC (Community Development Corporation), is proud to present its brand new greenhouse on April 22nd, 2010 from noon to 2pm. During this “Greenhouse Warming” Earth Day Celebration, The Partnership CDC (Community Development Corporation) invites members of the community and media to come and view the greenhouse and learn more about our green programs and initiatives.   

 The Green House Warming Earth Day Celebration is a chance for The Partnership CDC to bring members of our community together and encourage them to share in our mission of bringing a green future to West Philadelphia.  The Greenhouse itself will be dedicated to growing plants that The Partnership CDC’s Green Professional Training students will use in the installation of Green Roofs across West Philadelphia.  The Greenhouse will also serve as an educational venue for local students and groups who want to learn more about plant science, urban farming, and greenhouse construction.
