Our Greening Committee is working to restore two community gardens in time for the 2010 growing season. In particular, gardeners are needed for the Thompson and Mascher garden. Gardeners of all ages are welcome and one of the gardens is being designed with children in mind. If you would like a garden plot or would be interested in helping to maintain the gardens, please let us know. For more information: call the office at 215-427-3463 or send an email to .
Goodman is currently the Community Engagement Director at the New Kensington Community Development Corporation.
Previously, Goodman worked as a city planner and project manager for PennPraxis. His focus was on projects that combined community engagement and public space design, including the Central Delaware Waterfront Planning Process, the Green2015 initiative for Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, and the Bartram’s Mile project in Southwest Philadelphia. Goodman was an early contributor to PlanPhilly and helped shape the site in its first iteration. As PlanPhilly grew, Goodman represented the publisher and provided professional planning input and project management support as the site expanded its beat coverage, went through multiple redesigns, conducted an internal strategic plan, and researched revenue generation opportunities.
