Successful Brush Up at Broderick Park

helping out at the clean up

The turn out for our Brush Up Broderick event on Earth Day, April 22nd, was amazing. We don’t have a final count yet, but over 50 folks (including the mother/daughter team pictured above) came out to help us pick up trash as well as weed and mulch all the beds.

The job was fun and easy because of all the help. Everyone was enthusiastic about it. We saw some folks who were just out enjoying the park who were curious about what was going on and joined in. Some told us that they often visit the park and would be happy to help again.

We had lots of wheelbarrows and shovels, thanks to Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper and a few neighbors, to move around the mulch but could have used more – who knew?

Could you give us some feedback? We’d love to hear from you! Here’s the link to a few questions.
