Please join us for our next neighborhood cleanup day on Saturday, 8/22, from 8am-5pm! All ages welcome.
We'll be partnering with Brightside St. Louis - Project Blitz to remove trash, debris, and weeds from the alley and neighborhood blocks surrounding St. Augustine. The former Catholic church is the future home of non-profit Project Augustine, whose goal is to revitalize North St. Louis through food, art, and community. Help us with our efforts at revitalization and keep St. Louis beautiful!
Volunteer check-in will be in front of the main entrance of St. Augustine, located at 3114 Lismore. Street parking available on Lismore, as well as the blocks surrounding St. Augustine.
Brightside St. Louis is providing trash bags, rakes, and shovels. Project Augustine is providing gloves, safety glasses, hand sanitizer and disinfecting spray. This is a social-distancing friendly outdoor event, but masks are still encouraged. Volunteers are also welcome to bring their own tools and trash/lawn bags. If you have chain saws/hedge trimmers (and can use them safely), please bring those, too! We have some heavy duty bushes and vines to tackle. Long sleeves/pants suggested if you are sensitive to poison ivy, which may be present. We'll also begin preparing our boarded doors and windows for our first Art Day on 9/6.
Project Augustine will not be held liable for lost, stolen, or damaged property. Waivers required for all participants.
In the event of inclement weather the cleanup will be rescheduled. Updates will be posted on the event page, our website, and social media pages as necessary.
Please note, the church will not be open to the public for this event. Entering the building without permission is prohibited.
