West Ward Clean Up Day 2022

West Ward was flooded with green shirts and the streets were visibly cleaner after. Together, we cleaned up Butler Street, Elm Street, 13th Street, North and South 10th Street, N. 7th Street, Pearl & Prospect Streets. Not to mention those tree wells on Northampton St look awesome after much-needed mulching.

West Ward Clean Up Day 2021

Twenty volunteers spent a morning with us cleaning up & weeding overgrown spaces and beautifying our street corners. Thanks to those that came out and made West Ward shine.

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.

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.
