4th Annual Philly Spring Cleanup – Green Philly Blog Style!

Sick of litter on the streets?  Tired of Philly’s dirty rep?  Readers, who’s ready to take some action for the 4th Annual Philly Spring Cleanup?!?

As we mentioned, the City of Philadelphia  announced their 4th Annual Philly Spring Cleanup, “Keep Up the Sweep Up”, on Saturday, April 2, 2011 (rain date, Saturday, April 9) from 9 AM- 2 PM.

Green Philly Blog is partnering with another local blog, greenlimbs. Together, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be keeping & ‘sweeping’ in South Philadelphia’s Queen Village neighborhood (300-600 Washington Avenue).  We’ll need volunteers to help bag trash, recycle, tend trees and prepare beds for spring planting – (and we’ll even have a Pennsylvania Horticultural Society-trained tree tender in our group).

You can sign up to volunteer with us through the Streets Department site or by emailing us directly to greenphillyblog@gmail.com. Please RSVP with your name, email, and length of time (9-2 or when available).    Plus, the first wave of  volunteers will receive t-shirts! 🙂 For more info, visit our 4th Annual Philly Cleanup – Queens Village page and our Facebook Event Page here.

Paddy Whack’s (2nd & South) is sponsoring a Happy Hour for all volunteers from 2:30-4pm, so you can celebrate with other volunteers after!

We’re looking forward to volunteering with you!
