The student leadership program at Northampton Community College has collaborated with Lafayette College for their Lafapoolza National Day of Service. Activities will begin at Easton’s Community Center located at 901 Washington Street. Free trolley rides with the Lafayette Leopard will be available to the 10th and Pine Street Community Garden, the South 5th and Ferry Community Garden and the following pocket parks, N 7th Street Park, Dutchtown Park, Raspberry Street Park, Jackson Street Park, Bushkill Street Park, Centennial Park and Vandeveer Park.
The mission of the Festival is to assist Easton’s West Ward Neighborhood Partnership in celebrating parks and gardens in Easton. Student volunteers will be teaching children how to plant gardens and educating them about the importance of being “green” in today’s world. There will be a fun atmosphere for children, food, crafts and activities and much, much more! Prizes to be awarded to everyone able to reach each park!

Sustainable Urban Networks of the Lehigh Valley is conducting a community garden tool drive. There will be a barrel at the community garden at South 10th and Pine to collect new or used garden tools for the community gardens.

Yea, a trolley! I still can't believe that the West Ward used to have SEVEN trolleys before they were all taken out to make way for more cars...I hope this starts a trend!
