Happy Birthday TDP! Celebration + Fundraiser w/ Porter Street Band
Sat may 18 7-10pm

Join us as we commemorate this special milestone-- our first year in our new building space! Come celebrate with us and keep the party going! This past year has been full of building and growing new programs and settling into our home.


We are so excited for all the future possibilities of this space, and want to make sure we lean into celebrating all that has grown and developed so far. This fundraiser will support our sliding tuition scale and create more access to our unique learning programs.

Each ticket will get you good food, drinks, raffles, good company, celebration, and a live performance by Porter Street Band.

7pm doors open, celebration

We'll party til 10pm


Don't miss out on the fun and festivities as we mark this joyous occasion and help us fundraise for next year. See you there!

South Philly Hearth
A self-directed space for grownups!

Join us this Tuesday from 6-8pm at “The Hearth” - a weekly gathering space for our community members to create, connect, and engage in resource-sharing and mutual aid. You are encouraged to attend if you have things you need to do, things you'd like to do, or things you want help doing--and you'd be better able or more likely to do those with some company and support!


Like Wild Seeds, the Hearth intends to be an intentional, self-directed community for our adult community members, where participants take according to need and give according to capacity.In practice, this will likely look like some attendees engaged in quiet, independent work in one room and others participating in more active, collaborative projects in another. People may choose to attend because they... have a half-finished novel who wants a quiet space, some gentle accountability (or maybe even some feedback!) to finish the dang thing…

Every Tuesday from 6-8pm.


The Dandelion Project - 1415 S. 9th St. Philadelphia, PA


Attending The Hearth is free, but if you like what we do, please consider making a tax-deductible donation in support of The Dandelion Project, a 501(3)(c) non-profit.
