Spring Civic Sweep and Chalk Bloom!

04/22/2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Celebrate Spring by Sweeping the Streets Clean with the Park Slope Civic Council! 

Make a clean sweep of our neighborhood by joining the Sustainability Committee and the Arts Committee of the Park Slope Civic Council at the annual spring beautification, recycling and clean-up event — the Spring Civic Sweep on Sunday, April 22, 2018, from 10 am to 2 pm.  Our check-in is on 5th Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets adjacent to J.J. Byrne Playground/Washington Park.

Volunteers will participate in a Chalk Bloom, drawing gardens on sidewalks with chalk.  Volunteers will also pick up litter and paint out graffiti.  In addition:

  • Bring your unwanted electronics for recycling by the Lower East Side Ecology Center:  working & non-working computers, monitors, printers, scanners, keyboards, mice, cables, TVs, VCRs, CD & DVD players, phones, audio/visual equipment, cell phones & PDAs.
  • Get free native perennials from the Greenbelt Native Plant Center
  • Enjoy music from Misery Loves Company

We’ll provide refreshments, as well as all tools and supplies. Volunteers will receive T-shirts from Brooklyn SolarWorks and leave wearing “I Made Park Slope Cleaner Today” stickers. Community Service vouchers will be available.

Many thanks to our Media Partners:  Park Slope Parents and Park Slope Neighbors and to our Sponsors:  Artist & Craftsman Park Slope, Park Slope Copy Center and Tarzian Hardware.


See you there!
