    6 Things to Do & Know This Week: #OptOutside Edition

    Happy Friday!

    What to do today. Hope you’re taking time to #OptOutside today. (I’ll likely be hiking a trail from one of my three PA hiking books as you read this.) As Tiffany shared earlier this week, Black Friday has a fascinating and dark history, thanks to Philadelphia.

    What to do this weekend: River Alive opens at the Philadelphia Seaport Museum this weekend. Visit to discover the wonders and challenges of our regional waterways.  (Open 10 AM – 5 PM; 11 S. Columbus Blvd. Philadelphia, PA 19106)

    What’s on the calendar for next week: Women for a Sustainable Philadelphia (the FB group) is hosting a “The Water Around Us” panel to learn more about our city’s watersheds, the cleanliness of our drinking water, Green City Clean Waters, and more! Tuesday, Nov 27th.

    Can’t stop reading: EcoWURD. Launched out of WURD radio, EcoWURD is multimedia environmental justice journalism initiative examining Philadelphia at the intersection of race, income & the environment.

    New director at Food Moxie: FOOD MOXIE announced Lisa Mosca as their new ED; with two decades of experience working in Philadelphia with community members to build resilient community food systems by recognizing community assets.

    Good things come to those who wait! A year after they were our SustainPHL 2017 nominee, AnneeLondon has finally debuted its helmet Kova for pre-order. See & order the foldable helmet here.
