Keep PA Beautiful, Giant, Other Volunteers Clear Litter From Harrisburg’s Heart Of the Community Garden

PA Environment Digest BlogOn July 14, volunteers pulled weeds, laid mulch, repaired benches, picked up litter and planted flowers at Harrisburg’s Heart of the Community Garden, all while wearing masks and gloves and practicing physical distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The Community Garden received this TLC through a partnership between The Giant Company, Greenprint, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful and local affiliate Keep Harrisburg-Dauphin County Beautiful and Tri-County Community Action.

The garden, located at Derry and Kittatinny streets, is known for its three-story, ‘Live the Conversation’ mural that illustrates local community residents and leaders and delivers a message of inspiration and nonviolence.
