The Beautification Committee improves quality of life in Fishtown by building anti-litter infrastructure, supporting grassroot block-level clean-ups, and promoting trees and green spaces. We typically meet on the fourth Thursdays of each month at 6:30pm at Fishtown Rec Center. Please check the Calendar or our Facebook to confirm meeting location.
Street Tree Plantings One of our 2018 goals is to increase tree coverage in Fishtown. We encourage interested residents to apply (for FREE) with Philly Tree People, the local tree tender group that has been planting in 19125 and 19134 since 2007. Applications are due in May and November of each year, and approved trees will get planted by volunteers six months later. Apply for a free street tree here!Email email@example.com for more information.
