MIT Students visit West Philadelphia Neighborhoods

15 enthusiastic students and Professors Ann Sprin and Jim Wescoat from MIT converged on Philadelphia, Saturday, October 16, 2010 to observe the path of the creek known as Mill Creek. They were accompanied by students and staff from Earth’s Keepers, Youth Agriculture and Entrepreneurs Program. They toured the West Philly neighborhoods looking for ways to improve and beautify the landscape while converting storm water from the sewers to green space. It was a pleasure to spend time with them and a great experience for the youth. We hope Philadelphia take advantage of the creative ideas of the students.
