Ivy Ridge Green is Manayunk and Roxborough’s all-volunteer landscaping, tree planting, cleaning and greening collective. We are neighbors active in the local civic groups who don’t mind working with our hands.
Ivy Ridge Green maintains three projects on an ongoing basis: Ivy Ridge Trail (the out-of-use R6 regional rail line), the Fountain Street Steps, and Germany Hill. We also lend our time and tools to ad hoc projects around the neighborhood, such as cleanups at the Schuylkill Environmental Center, Cynwyd Heritage Trail and the Roxborough High School.
We work year-round and cleanups are generally scheduled two weeks to a month in advance. Visit our website or join us on Facebook to get in the loop.
