I always recommend the park to my clients because of its year round beauty! Book your next Anson B Nixon Park photo session today. It's never too early to be thinking about those Spring photos!! Www.Typeonephoto.com
I left my Bluetooth speaker by the basketball court this past Sunday- any chance someone found it/turned it in? Thanks
Here's a taste of Tony Vacca's World Rhythms Ensemble. They play a free show sponsored by Hadley Presents at Anson B Nixon Park on Sunday October 10th at 3pm!

Tony played on Sting's Soul Cages album! He has recorded and performed with such a wide range of musicians such as Sting, Senegalese Afro-pop artist Baaba Maal, Legendary Jazz trumpeter Don Cherry, poet Abiodun Oyewole, Senegalese Hip-Hop artists Gokh-bi System, and Massamba Diop.

Special Guest at this concert is Massamba Diop. His masterful talking drum can be heard throughout The Black Panther soundtrack.
Our hearts are still fluttering from Friday's final Pollination Celebration of the season at the Kennett Square Farmers Market with a focus on butterflies. These celebrations have been a wonderful partnership with the Kennett Library who organized a speaker(s) for each program. This month's speakers included monarch butterfly expert Gary Liska and Casa Guanajuato Kennett Square Mayro Castillo who talked about the cultural significance of the monarch butterfly to Mexico and Mexican immigrants.

Our guest vendors included Anson B Nixon Park who will be installing a pollinator garden, The Kennett Greenway distributing their youth-focused Nature as Teacher activity guides and maps, Mt. Cuba Center with their exciting fall programming and focus on native plants for pollinators, Kitchen Art photography, The Garage Community and Youth Center recruiting volunteers, the many programs of the Kennett Library, and Casa Guanajuato Kennett Square with artisan wares from Mexico and a great butterfly focused kids craft. Our very special guest was Catrinamia and her wonderful monarch themed catrina. Many thanks to all involved including our regular farmers market vendors and site hosts The Creamery of Kennett Square.
We are looking forward to the rain clearing and the Pollination Celebration: Monarch Butterflies! at Friday's Kennett Square Farmers Market. Click link (and scroll through photos) for a complete description of the exciting festivities. In addition to our wonderful market vendors we are happy to welcome the following community partners: Anson B Nixon Park Casa Guanajuato Kennett Square Catrinamia Emergent Abundance Farming Collective The Kennett Greenway Kennett Library and Mt.
