West Ward Clean Up Day

Calling all community members and businesses! We need YOU! Join the neighborhood on Saturday, April 24th to spruce up the West Ward. We have three group projects that are looking for volunteer help or choose to do some work around your own home or business.

Paxinosa Garden Clean Up

Calling all hands! We’ll be partnering with Paxinosa School and Kellyn Foundation to clean out the side garden, weeding, and laying down cardboard and mulch. Please bring shovels, rakes, and gloves if you have them. Meet at the main entrance of Paxinosa on the Northampton Street side; we’ll work from 9am-12Noon.

Veile Street Garden

Help clean out a vacant lot, prep the space with mulch, and build three raised beds for a new community garden space. Meet at the corner of Veile and Sassafrass streets (off of N. 7th Street), 9am-12Noon.

Street Corner Planters

Get some color on the corners! Our Easton Ambassador team and Clean & Safe Committee will be leading the efforts to get spring plants into the 13 planters along Walnut and Ferry streets. Meet at the 10th & Pine Street Garden at 9am.

Block Clean Up

Don’t want to be in a group setting? Feel free to clean up around your property, your block, or a few blocks in your neighborhood. You can:

  • Spruce up the area in front of your house(s)

  • Pick-up trash
  • Clear storm water drain grates
  • Plant your window boxes or front porch planters
  • Sweep off your front porch

Remember West Ward Clean Up Day 2020

To all the great neighbors that came out and supported our first West Ward Clean Up Day, we can’t thank you enough. Even though we participated separately, we acted together, as one. Whether you spent 20 minutes, 2 hours, or all day cleaning or sprucing up your property, it was so very much appreciated. As one of our participants said, “pride is contagious.” Check out this awesome video documenting some of the day’s efforts by local photographer/videographer and West Ward resident, Jay Arch.
