Garfield Community Action Team (GCAT)

Residents creating a cleaner, greener, safer Garfield.

Garfield Community Events – 2018

There are many great ways to get involved with Garfield community.  We have several grass root efforts that are focused on the environment like clean-ups, tree plantings, and gardening.  We have efforts around helping our neighbors and informing them around activities and events that benefit Garfield families, like the Garfield Community Ambassadors and Garfield Land Trust.

Below are a few people you can connect with to get more involved in some of these initiatives and be sure to check our GCAT’s updated 2018 calendar full of volunteer events this spring and summer.
