Two neighborhood cleanups this Saturday: Park View Rec Center and Columbia Heights

Here's a good opportunity to help make our area look better: there are not one but two neighborhood cleanups this Saturday.

One is at the Park View Rec Center at 693 Otis Pl NW, where there will be weeding, planting a kids vegetable garden and general cleaning, followed by a pizza party.

The other is a more traditional street cleanup of Columbia Heights: folks meet at the Dunes at 14th and Meridian starting at 10am and make their way around the area. All materials will be provided.

So get out there and do some good! Here's more info on the Park View event, and see the flyer for the Columbia Heights one.
We are reaching the end of the planting season, and are going to have one more planting event putting a small shade garden in the flower bed in the Rec Center courtyard and helping DPR with its kids vegetable garden. We will also do soe much needed weeding and address other maintenance concerns. 
We really depend on community support to make these events possible, so please come out and bring your friends and neighbors!
