Camden Community GreenUP

With GreenUp now in full swing, we wanted to tell you where we are and where we’re going. We had a hugely successful GreenUp kick-off event on September 14, 2009. With your help, we managed to:

  • Recruit & Deploy over 50 Volunteers

  • Clean and Green 13 Vacant Lots; and

  • Spark Excitement for GreenUp with a Media Event with Mayor Gwendolyn Faison.

Check out media from the event at

** GreenUp** will be moving to other vacant lots over the next few weeks. Look out for other volunteer opportunities in the weeks ahead. But for right now, we want you to “save the date” for the GreenUp closing event on October 19, 2009, when we will “clean and green” across three city blocks in Lanning Square, an effort that will culminate in a party to celebrate what we have been able to accomplish in just a few short weeks.

Look out for more information on this event shortly!
