Philadelphia Green is looking for some hardy volunteers to help maintain some popular downtown landscapes. Not only is this an opportunity to contribute to Philadelphia’s green image, but you’re bound to meet great people and enjoy spending time outside.
The project sites are the Gas Station Garden and Coxe Park, at 20th & Arch streets; the Triangle Garden, off the expressway in the Logan Square neighborhood; and the Eastern State Penitentiary Terrace Garden, located on Fairmount Ave. between Corinthian and 22nd streets.

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.
