What is Love Your Block? Love Your Block is a spring citywide program to beautify and clean up Boston one block at a time.

What is Love Your Block FPNA Style?

It is Fort Point and Seaport businesses and residents creating a living tapestry together. With your continuous support, FPNA is celebrating the fourteenth annual neighborhood beautification event. Please join us as we plant, sweep and rake our way into spring. 

It is two volunteer events: one for businesses and one for residents.

FPNA Corporate Volunteer Day On Friday, May 18th from 11 am - 2 pm over 50 employees volunteered for Love Your Block. Companies participated by sponsoring a tree circle or street panel or as a tree angel, and by giving their employees an opportunity to volunteer for an hour or two in their work neighborhood.  Volunteers from neighborhood companies planted flowers and designed tree circles along A Street and Congress St.  Tools, gloves, commemorative t-shirt and lunch were provided in Wormwood Park (Wormwood & A Streets) for those who volunteer (green thumb not required). Take a look at all the flowers along A Street from Melcher to Wormwood Park.

FPNA Residents Volunteer Day: Saturday, May 19th from 10 am -1 pm. Gather for coffee and pastries in Wormwood Park (Wormwood & A Streets) starting at 10 am. Tools, gloves and commemorative t-shirt provided. Come meet your neighbors and plant, sweep or rake for an hour or stay all day. We will be gardening primarily in Wormwood Park and along A Street fence from Melcher St to Wormwood St. Donations are gratefully accepted to help repair winter damage to plants and vines, and to beautify Wormwood Park.  We recommend people wear gardening clothes or clothes and footwear you don't mind getting into the dirt.

Annual Melcher Street Cleaning Day is Saturday, May 19th from 9 am to 1 pm. By moving your car off Melcher St, you will allow street sweepers to clean the street. With 24/7 resident parking, Saturday is a once a year opportunity. Free parking provided courtesy of P&G Gillette Channelside parking. View your car flyer for special instructions. 

FPNA Residents Volunteer Sunday: May 20th from 10:30 am - 2:00 pm. Thank You Picnic starts 5 pm in Wormwood Park. Enjoy delicious treats and beverages from local restaurants and shops.
