Summary

The Arch St. greenspace is one of the oldest active greenspace groups. Over the years, participation has varied. This year, in response to a lower level of community participation, Arch St. relied on an outside volunteer group, Yale Explo, for assistance to complete work at the site over the summer. Building on the work of years of successful community activity at Arch St, Yale Explo successfully picked up trash, weeded both planted areas and the central pathway, mulched beds and pruned low branches on trees and high growing shrubs that obscured site lines throughout the greenspace.
