The Glean Committee is focused on our partnerships with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS), Neighborhood Gardens Association (NGA), and other neighborhood groups to expand the amount of green space in our community.
Our big events are the biannual tree plantings run as part of the TreeVitalize program with PHS. We also have created a thriving neighborhood garden at Reed & Bouvier Sts. in partnership with NGA.
We hold monthly meetings of the Clean & Green committees on the first Monday of each month at 6:30pm at Ultimo Coffee on 15th and Mifflin Sts. Check the events calendar for updates or changes to the schedule.
Our goals as a group are
- To increase accessible green space around the neighborhood
- To reduce rain water runoff problems by planting trees
- To educate community members about the benefits of keeping your neighborhood clean and green
If you'd like to get involved, please feel free to show up to a meeting or contact the committee chairs.
