Join Charleston Moves, Charleston Waterkeeper, Keep Charleston Beautiful, Lowcountry Land Trust, Charles Towne Fermentory, Community Yoga and Desayuno Charleston on Sunday, March 4 for a spring community cleanup of the West Ashley Bikeway and Greenway!
From 10am to noon, we will work in teams to tackle the litter from all angles. To clean the West Ashley Bikeway, meet at Forest Park Playground (780 Playground Road). To clean the West Ashley Greenway, meet at the intersection of the Greenway and Coburg Road. Collectively, we’ll clean these two major West Ashley assets, so the community can enjoy walking, running and biking throughout the spring season. At noon, we will head to Charles Towne Fermentory, just off the Greenway in Avondale, for a selection of tasty brews and Mexican-inspired brunch by Desayuno Charleston.
