West Ward Clean Up Day 2021
Paxinosa Garden Clean Up
What a crew! We partnered with Paxinosa School and Kellyn Foundation to clean out the side garden, weeding, and laying down cardboard and mulch. A dozen volunteers made short work of the space and got it de-weeded in three short hours.
Veile Street Garden
Ready for veggies! Volunteers helped a neighbor clean out a vacant lot, prep the space with mulch, and build three raised beds for a new community garden space.
Street Corner Planters
Spring plants are in! Four volunteers worked with our Easton Ambassador team and Clean & Safe Committee to get pansies into the 13 planters along Walnut and Ferry streets.
