Successful Weed-A-Thon and More!

Sarah, Amanda and I cleared
weeds from the Triangle Garden
Many thanks to Annie, Matt, Josh, Chris, Amanda and Sarah for coming out and making the gardens look so much better! Even Nate stopped by for a bit just to say hello after the Mission Bay Easter Egg hunt. So many projects were undertaken, it's hard to keep track of them all, but the gardens are looking so much better and a mountain of weeds were cleared.

Beautiful plants were revealed
 once the weeds were removed
We were also fortunate to get a visit from Crima's horticulture class from City College of San Francisco. Crima has been bringing students by to learn about the gardens for years, Annie did the tour and lecture this year, which is always a special event. Previously, we have even hosted interns from CCSF, which was a lot of fun for me to teach and come up with special projects. Many thanks to Crima and CCSF for visiting and supporting the gardens!

Hope to see you all at our regular workday on Saturday May 6th from 10-12.

April Fool's day - for weeds!

We had a lovely sunny volunteer day on Saturday and the weeds at Pennsylvania Railroad garden couldn't take a joke! So we pulled them out.

Last weekend Matt and I stripped all the weeds off an area at the bottom of PRG, and this week, cheerfully joined by hardworking Aditi, Chris and Carrie, we expanded that weed-free zone significantly.

How great that feels! There are TONS more weeds though - please join us on April 15th for an Easter Weedathon! We will start at 10am and go to 3pm, with pizza for everyone at midday. Come for the whole day, or even just for an hour, and help us get this weed situation under control!
