Are you ready to help clean up Mother Earth? Earth Day is coming up in April, and Philadelphia is celebrating by having a city-wide Philly Spring Cleanup Day on Saturday, April 13. After a poll on our Facebook group, the neighborhood we’ll be headed to is Society Hill in Center City. The details of the event are below.
