Dear friends and supporters of the Diamond Heights Blvd. Median Project,
Our median islands are flush with weeds from abundant winter and spring rains.
Of particular concern is a weed commonly called foxtail grass that can get stuck in a dog’s paws.
While the crosswalk has been a welcome addition that allows pedestrians to safely cross, there are large clumps of foxtail grass on either side that need to be removed.
Please come join us and invite your fellow dog owners to help us remove the foxtail and keep our medians safe and beautiful.
Date: Saturday, June 8
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon
Location: Meet at St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church, 101 Gold Mine Dr, Parish Hall (Lower Level)
Refreshments: Morning snacks
Lunch: We will serve a hot lunch afterward to say thank you
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we have a headcount for lunch.
Note: if the rain is a drizzle to light sprinkle, we will proceed. Only heavy rain and/or thick fog will cause a cancellation.
Recommended for 12 years and older; no gardening experience required, but there will be bending and kneeling (pads and gloves will be provided). Some light hoeing, too.
If you have preferred personal gloves and tools, you are welcome to bring them.
If you’re unable to join us in person but would like to show your support, please consider making a financial contribution.
Future volunteer workdays are scheduled for July 13, August 3 and September 7.
As always, thank you for your many forms of support, contribution, and encouragement.
Special thanks to our project sponsors: the Diamond Heights Shopping Center, Safeway, and Harbor Villa Restaurant for their ongoing support (including volunteer hours, financial and in-kind donations, and encouragement), and to Lanita Henriquez at the City of San Francisco Community Challenge Grant.
