Better Farm Presents... Earth Day Cleanup

What happens when two dozen people with 150 garbage bags descend on a small downtown?

They transform it.

Better Farm, in conjunction with the Redwood Neighborhood Association, on April 24 organized an Earth Day cleanup in downtown Redwood. Biodegradable garbage bags for the event were generously donated by EcoSafe, and The Redwood Tavern kept the crew hydrated (water!) throughout the day.

Over the course of four hours, the group cleaned along Route 37, the ATV trail cutting through town along Mud Lake, in and around business parking lots, and waterfront.

Many thanks to all the volunteers (including the kids over at Hearts for Youth!), the DOT, and to EcoSafe Plastics for making the event possible.
