Keep Prince William Beautiful (KPWB), an environmental and community focused non-profit, is hosting an event series called the ‘Do Beautiful Things Series’ in Prince William.
According to a release, the series will be full of outreach and community events “designed to celebrate all the ‘beautiful’ things to do in Prince William County.”
The series will kick off on March 25 with the Virginia Cooperative Extension and the Master Gardeners with a class on sustainable gardening practices. That event will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Central Community Library in Manassas, according to a release.
“We always say we don’t clean up only for the sake of keeping Prince William beautiful, but rather so our citizens can do beautiful things. When parks are clean, kids will go; home values are higher in neighborhoods free of litter; businesses open on clean, green streets, and the list goes on. These events will help us take the ‘do beautiful things’ message to the community, and in a way that promotes other sustainable programs that enable people to do beautiful things,” stated KPWB’s Executive Director Jason Parsons in a release.
In addition to the gardening class, KPWB will do a yoga class at Lake Ridge Park, a nature painting demonstration, planter box class, and other activities between March and September, stated a release.
“We look forward to partnering with organizations, farmers, conservationists, neighborhood leaders, and others to celebrate the beautiful things we can do when our community is clean and green. Join us for these events and learn about the great work we are doing – including removing nearly 90,000 pounds of litter a year from our roadways and streets – to keep Prince William beautiful,” stated Parsons in a release.
