2nd Annual Green-a-thon

September 23, 2011 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

On Friday September 23rd, Groundwork Somerville will be engaging Tufts Volunteers in an effort to clean up Somerville for our second annual Green-a-thon.

Students volunteering through “Repair the World Service Day” will be meeting Groundwork Somerville representatives at two sites in the city that have been flagged “dirty” by community members.  One team will be working to pick up trash in a vacant lot adjacent to the Healey School and near Groundwork Somerville’s Healey School Garden.  The second team will be picking up trash that has collected behind the Somerville High School and the Commuter Rail tracks.

Groundwork Somerville’s Green-a-thon was made possible thanks to the support of Apex Green Roofswww.raymondzonghetti.com, and Somerville’s Department of Public Works.

Press are invited to visit the crews at both sites.  Student volunteers will be arriving to each site at 11:30am and staying until 1:30 (end time may change in the case of heavy rain).  For up-to-date info, please contact Groundwork Somerville’s Gardens Coordiantor Tai Dinnan at tai [at] groundworksomerville.org or 617-628-9988.
