The WSWCA Greeting Committee strives to uphold William Penn's vision of a "greene countrie towne." The volunteers of the Greening Committee work hard to make Wash West a greener, healthier, and more attractive neighborhood. Our activities include:

Community GardeningSince 1995 we have managed three community gardens that together provide gardening opportunities for more than 150 Wash West residents each year. Click here for information on community gardens in Wash West.

Tree Planting, Care and PruningWe have an active tree planting program supported by grants and individual contributions. We plant a dozen or more trees in the neighborhood each year, for a total of over 600 trees so far. Click here for more information on tree planting in Wash West.

Your support is invaluable to our greening efforts! Please e-mail us at rspitzborg@aol.com or call the Civic Association office to volunteer, make a contribution or request more information about the activities and services of the Greening Committee.
