Spring Gardening + Shape Up the Shop with NBW!


Cause Areas


Sat May 05, 2018, 11:00 AM - 01:00 PM


Neighborhood Bike Works3939 Lancaster Ave.Philadelphia, PA 19104


We'll be spending three hours on Saturday, May 5th from 11-3pm to plant an edible garden in our courtyard, pick up trash around our building, and organize NBW's heavily used shop space at 3939 Lancaster Ave. Will you help us? Inside our shop specifically, volunteers will strip donated bikes and sort used parts, learn to patch flats, restock Bike Church and Earn-A-Bike parts bins, process bike donations, and more. We will be serving hot dogs (vegan too), salad, and cool beverages to celebrate the new season.

With youth and community bicycle education programs running five days a week, it's a herculean task to keep our space tidy, safe, and usable. Volunteer support is crucial to keeping everything running smoothly!

Can't make it this time? Our regular Shape Up the Shop usually occurs the first Saturday of every month.
