Green Up Wash Ave 2015

We spent 4.5 hours cleaning up the tree pits and mulching all the trees along both sides of Washington Ave, talk about moving a mountain of mulch! Besides that 10 blocks length we also did some of the side streets as well.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the volunteers who came out and help! It was for sure hard works and we together made a huge impact on Wash Ave!!! What a beautiful day in Brooklyn!!!

HUGE THANK YOU to Emily from Partnerships for Parks/ City Parks Foundation and Bob from Prospect Heights Street Tree Task Force for helping us in organizing this fantastic event!
