“Mayor’s Cleanup” a success

April 2010 - Fountain Street Steps

Check that field preparation! Blaise Syrnick and Annie Scott flagged every single plant they needed volunteers to protect while they weeded. No kidding.

Ivy Ridge Green kicked off its spring season today with the Mayor’s 3rd annual cleanup, “Keep Up the Sweep Up.”

Big thanks to the several dozen volunteers who joined us, to City Year, to the great folks in the City Streets & Sanitation Departments who supported the effort. And thanks to all of the project partners, of whom there are too many to name at this point — you know who you are.

We tackled projects spread out over nearly a mile today, working all the way from the Manayunk Bridge — where volunteers hung a sign, discouraging dumping and vandalism to SEPTA’s fencing — to the banks of Germany Hill. But the main action was along the Fountain Street Steps & the Tow Path where volunteers hauled debris and weeded in preparation for Philly “Spring Into Your Park” day in May.

Join us then: Saturday, May 8th. Check back here for details in a couple of weeks.
