This week we bring you a Fall Virtual Garden tour featuring local gardens created with with the help of our Master Gardeners of Delaware County!
Here are pictures from the Chester Eastside St. Paul’s community garden, started four years ago. Delaware County Master Gardeners donated vegetable plants and assisted in early planning for the garden. The garden now includes nine raised beds and is cared for by the children involved in Chester Eastside’s after school program and summer camp.
These young gardeners accomplished much – created a thriving strawberry patch; produced vegetables for donation to the Chester Eastside Food Cupboard; created a butterfly habitat; kept student field journals of their learnings; successfully grown vegetables including swiss chard, kale, collards, cabbage, broccoli, carrots, beets, onions, herbs eggplant, tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers and more; and brought fresh produce home to their families!
Delaware Children’s Museum. What a beautiful day for some movement! Take a walk and collect your leaves for our upcoming fall fun activities! As you encounter a leaf of the colors below, do the action assigned. Use our rules, or make up your own!

Rev. Z was a guest speaker recently for the Radical Jesus course at Swarthmore College. The course, taught by CEI friend Mark Wallace, asks who was the real historical Jesus and what is his relevance for us today. No doubt she provided some interesting insight. #swarthmorecollege #radicaljesus #collegecourse #historicaljesus #chestereastside
