the project


I am an ambassador with the GTECH ReClaim Mckeesport program. We are transforming vacant lots within the community into beautiful green spaces. My vacant lot is located at the corner of Union and Beaver Street in the 7th ward of Mckeesport. I have plans to turn this lot into a beautiful perennial/tree garden, with a small winding path through out. I hope to bring this neighborhood closer and pursue others to also make changes. Since my lot is larger and centered around my fellow ambassadors spaces, we have hopes of purchasing a storage shed to hold all of our tools and materials needed for the upkeep of our projects.

the steps

  1. Recruit Volunteers (FIRST VOLUNTEER DAY IS SATURDAY, MAY 16, 2 - 5pm)
  2. Plans to prepare grass lot, cutting and digging of a path to wind through out
  3. Multiple island shaped flower beds
  4. Holes dug for multiple flowering trees
  5. Planting of perennials, shrubs, and trees
  6. Spreading of mulch/wood chips
  7. Hopes of purchasing a storage shed for shared use by fellow ambassadors to house tools and materials needed for the up keep of projects

why we're doing it

I am doing this project to bring life and color back into this neighborhood, and to pursue others to do the same. We all have to do our part to beautify the place we call home.
