Beautification Committee

Go Green!

Our Beautification (“Clean & Green”) Committee seeks to improve the quality of life for all residents that live in East Passyunk Crossing and to promote environmental sustainability in the neighborhood.

Our committee has shown a commitment to this mission through bi-annual tree plantings and maintenance, neighborhood clean-ups, promoting environmentally responsible projects, and general beautifying of the neighborhood. We are also proud to have opened the East Passyunk Crossing Community Garden.

We invite anyone in the community with a passion for their environment to come out and help us make East Passyunk Crossing a cleaner and greener place to live!

Monthly Meeting

Meetings are held monthly at the East Passyunk Community Center (1025 Mifflin St). Follow EPX Beautification on Facebook for updates on meetings and events.

Committee Chair

Emily Gowen has lived in the East Passyunk Crossing neighborhood for several years and first got involved in the Beautification Committee through volunteering with the Tree Tenders during a tree planting day. She is an enthusiastic gardener with a background in grants management and arts administration.
