2019 Cleaning & Greening Calendar:


May 4th, 10am-12pm: 

Somerville Spring Clean Up and Comcast Cares Day!

Various Somerville Locations

Every year, we gather together to celebrate spring and get together with neighbours to take care of our community spaces. Our annual Mayor’s Spring Clean Up/Comcast Cares Day is a city-wide cleanup and gardening day from 10 am to 12 pm at 11 different sites across Somerville. Comcast generously provides sponsorship for this day.  We are looking for as many volunteers and groups as possible to get out, get dirty, and clean up our parks, streets and gardens!

These volunteer-based efforts work to improve public space in partnership with local businesses and organizations. It is our hope that these events will continue to run throughout the city as Groundwork Somerville’s Cleaning & Greening programs expand and allow more opportunities for individuals to engage in their community.

With the help of individual and business based partnerships, Groundwork Somerville’s Cleaning & Greening program will bring our community together to make the city sparkle!
