Thirty-five people participated in the April 23 Clifton Earth Day event, an organizer Laura McDonald said. In two hours, volunteers picked up 25 bags of trash, weeded, created a pollinator garden and planted 100 perennial native flowers around the historic town.
The Clifton Betterment Association, Town of Clifton and Clean Fairfax Council sponsored the cleanup.
Local businesses donated door prizes as part of the Earth Day event, including Belle Jar Design, Clifton Cafe, Cupcaked Bakery, Hydrangea of Clifton-Jennifer Benford Heilmann, The Main Street Pub, Peterson's Ice Cream Depot, Trummer's On Main, and WheelHouse Mind Body Studio.
