“Neighbors of historic district continue long tradition of cooperation to restore and renew streetscape (and have fun doing it)”
From Allegheny West, Catherine Serventi’s project gathered neighbors to beautify repair and restore street tree wells in the Allegheny West neighborhood during spring 2015. The project called on the combined gardening knowledge of nearby neighbors and benefited from contributions from local garden centers. The project rallied volunteers to first clean up existing tree wells and vacant lots, and then plant flowers and spread mulch to stabilize and protect the newly restored tree wells. Local business Babb Insurance committed to supporting ongoing maintenance and care by residents to sustain the work begun by this Neighbor-to-Neighbor project.
