Forwarded from Paul Matalucci, the neighborhood dynamo and organizing energy behind improvements to Diamond Heights Boulevard:
Hello supporters of the Diamond Heights Blvd. Median Project,
I’m pleased to let you know that our Phase 1 planting continues to look healthy and colorful more than two years after initial planting. (Phase 1, as you may recall, is comprised of two thin median islands between Diamond Street and Berkeley Way.)
A few gaps remain, and some plants need to be refreshed, so we have scheduled a planting day for Saturday, August 27, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, to be followed by a thank-you lunch for volunteers.
Please reply directly to me if you would like to participate, or have questions. (Email is firstname.lastname@example.org)
All ages and abilities are welcome, and no gardening experience is needed. We also have several tasks to assign that don’t require bending or kneeling.
The new plants will be Eriogonum grande var. rubescens “Red Buckwheat” and Lampranthus “Pink Kaboom.”
You can see photos on our website.
I’m overdue to share a broader update on the project. Those of you in the neighborhood have no doubt seen the work that was completed this spring.
I will send a project update soon.
All the best,
