Reading Rising

The Community gives to us, and we want to give back. We have made urban greening our mandate. Check out the beautification of our previous proejcts.

The Reading Rising Story

Our outreach projects have focused on urban greening. We created and donated a lovely garden to the City of Reading. It’s located alongside the parking lot of the main library on Franklin Street in Reading. This was preceeded by seasonal planters in front of the library and the S. 5th Street neighborhood.  EC members continue to maintain all previous projects.

We are about to unveil our most ambitious project: Reading Rising Park, at the corner of Franklin and 2nd Streets. A private/public collaboration, extensive in its reach and restful in its purpose.  For a mediative quiet time out, a game of chess, or a lunch break with a friend,  visit the park across the street from the Reading Area Community College.
