On Earth Day, the the month of April 2007, The Buddhist Faith Fellowship's socially engaged chapter, called Buddha Gaia, conducted its second annual street clean up of Middletown, Connecticut. A multi-block area was covered from Main Street through parts of the North End section. Numerous sangha members participated in this event and the activity lasted 2 1/2 hours.
 
Buddha Gaia offered gloves, waste bags, pick up sticks, free coffee and delicious bread from O'Rourke's Diner. It was a beautiful day with the temperature reaching 74 degrees.
