The clean-up will run from 10 am – noon and pre-registration is required.  Participants aged 15 or younger must be accompanied by an adult. The adult should complete the registration and waiver and include the name(s) of the minor(s) in the comments as well as include the total number of people who will be attending under the adult’s name.

Trash bags, disposable gloves, hand sanitizer, and trash pickers will be available on site. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own supplies.

“Our Community Clean-up, slated for Earth Day+2, coincides with regional, state and county events focused on beautifying our communities,” stated Councilwoman Jennifer Keyes-Maloney, “including the Mercer County Sustainability Coalition’s Greening Together event, a week-long celebration of Earth Day- Arbor Day with both in-person and virtual events.”

Community members will be notified upon sign-up as to their reporting location at the park.  This is a rain or shine event. 

“We are so appreciative of residents who are willing to give up a bit of their Sunday to help beautify an important recreational space in Ewing.”  said Ewing Mayor Bert Steinmann.

As a thank you for all your hard work, cleanup participants will be rewarded with a treat from Rita’s Italian Ice! Each ice flavor will be pre-packaged, and you will receive biodegradable spoon! What a sweet way to end a cleanup!

Community members unable to participate in the event at Moody Park are encouraged to consider cleaning up their portion of the community, whether that be a street corner, storm drain or common area.  We invite you to share photos of your personal cleanups.

Thank YOU for making a difference in Ewing!

Ewing Community Gardens Fall Clean Up This Saturday

A Fall Workday Planned for Sept 21st from 9 – 5.  All hands are needed.

This is a heads up that a site clean up for the Community Gardens is planned for this Saturday, the 21st from 9 – 5.  We are extremely fortunate in that we are going to have the volunteer services of a team of Bonner and other TCNJ students.   We also hope that some of the gardeners will participate.
We ask for your help with our agenda for the day.  All contributions of newspaper (no glossy pages) and cardboard would be most appreciated for weed suppression in the paths.  We also desperately need wheelbarrows (and possibly shovels) to move the mulch.  If you have tools that we could use for the day we would be very grateful.  Any contributions of homemade goodies to sustain the workers would also be gratefully accepted.  And finally, if you could donate an hour or two of your time weeding, moving mulch, etc., it would be incredibly helpful.  We have a lot of work facing us and as they say, many hands make light work.
Thanks to all for their anticipated assistance and community spirit.
