Summary

This year marks the 8th anniversary for Blockwatch 303 as a URI Community Greenspace Group. They have beautified over eight unique sites throughout the Westville neighborhood, including locations at the Westville Public Library, the Public Parking Lot, and in and around Edgewood Park. The commitment and dedication of the group is seen in its well-maintained perennial beds, amazing selection, diversity, and overall design of their plantings. They have a wide volunteer base as well, with planting, weeding, and other maintenance events to help build a stronger, and more beautiful, community.
