Spring Spruce Up

Spring Spruce Up 2023 is part of Tangletown Neighborhood Day on May 13. Learn more here!

Saturday May 21 and Sunday May 22, 2022

Join your neighbors for our annual Spring Spruce Up event to beautify our neighborhood and ensure accessibility for all. We invite Tangletown residents to clean and beautify their sidewalks, boulevards, and parks as a community on May 21st and 22nd. Commit to our Spring Spruce Up event to make sure you don’t put off planting that garden, trimming those bushes/trees, or sweeping up that winter sand. We’ll provide yard waste bags and litter pick up supplies for those who register. Pick up of items will run on Saturday May 21 from 10:00am-2:00pm at the Mayflower Church Parking Lot. We’ll also have Master Gardeners available to answer all your gardening questions!

Registration for the free items is now closed, but please stop by Mayflower for advice from our Master Gardeners and pick up compost!

Compost Pick Up Fundraiser May 21st

Have you ever wondered what happens to your organics recycling? Here’s your chance to have your food scraps turned compost right in your yard! Our commercial compost site will deliver a load of compost and neighbors can stock up for all their gardening needs. Bring your own fillable containers for a suggested donation of $2 per 20 pounds of compost. If you need to use one of the provided burlap bags, an additional $1 per bag is requested to cover the cost of the bag. The compost pick up will take place in the Mayflower Church parking lot (106 E Diamond Lake Road) from 10:00am-2:00pm on Saturday, May 21st.  First come first serve.

If bringing your own refillable containers or shovels for loading, please ensure all dirt is cleared from your items to ensure no spread of invasive jumping worms.

Master Gardener Consultations

New this year, we’ll have Master Gardener volunteers available at Mayflower Church from 10am-2pm on Saturday May 21 to answer all your gardening questions.

Don’t have a yard? Our parks need your help

Our wonderful parks and schools could use some sprucing up too!  We would love to have our neighbors commit to pick up litter and help beautify our public spaces.  Let’s spruce up all of Tangletown for everyone to enjoy!
