South Philadelphia Food Co-op Garden Tour

Six Fishes is proud to be a sponsor in this year’s SPFC Garden Tour. On Saturday, September 12, from 1 to 4 p.m., the South Philly Food Co-op has gathered together a spectacular showcase of private and community gardens for the fifth annual South Philly Garden Tour, a self-guided exploration of dozens of South Philly’s most fascinating, lush, quirky and unique outdoor spaces. We’ve included some Six Fishes coupons and supplement samples. We hope that you will join the garden tour and better yet, become a member of the coop!

Back to School

Six Fishes cares about Philadelphia schools. Despite the temptation to rant about the state of public schools in the city, the lack of $ and the fact that all city schools should be palaces of learning, well- we just wont go there. Nope. not even a little. Cara’s kids are products of Philly public schools and see how well they turned out? Well- these schools need help. We’re helping. We are sorry that we can’t afford to buy each child in 19146 an ipad loaded with books and learning apps. A case of paper and pencils will have to suffice. We have prepared a special delivery for Chester A. Arthur Elementary School located in South Philly.

Want to donate paper and pencils? We’re volunteering Six Fishes Neighborhood Acupuncture as a drop off point. Please share this with your friends who aren’t on our mailing list. You can easily contact us by phone or just drop in during office hours.

It’s the Fifth Season- Welcome the Earth Element

Late summer is the season associated with Earth element. Although our calendar does not inlcude a fifth season, we intuitively understand that this is a time that is distinct from both summer and autumn. The light is shifting, our attention is moving towards the future.This is a season of harvest.Earth is related to the organ and meridian system of the Spleen and its partnered organ the Stomach. In our body, as in nature, the Earth element is concerned with generating, nurturing, abundance and the ripening of the life force.

I had never experienced acupuncture before and knew little about it, but was having no luck with other methods addressing food allergy issues, so I thought I’d give it a try. Melanie had honest and thorough answers to my questions as we started the process and made me feel comfortable in very unfamiliar territory. Her work has helped me tremendously not only with the food allergies I came in for, but with other health issues (i.e. menstrual and bowel irregularity and sleep issues during stressful times) I didn’t even know could be resolved. I now recommend acupuncture and Melanie to everyone!
