FUF COMING TO DISTRICT 8 FOR
SIDEWALK GARDENS + EXPANDED TREE BASINS
Friends of the Urban Forest has confirmed a Zoom meeting on Tuesday December 7, 6:30-7:30pm to answer your questions about adding a sidewalk garden. If you haven’t already, sign up here or email your information. (FUF will send the Zoom link)
There are several opportunities to remove concrete and improve our environment both ecologically and aesthetically.
- Sidewalk garden: remove concrete near your home and customize your garden with native California plants and permeable pavers.
- Expanded tree basin: remove concrete to support existing trees, add additional plants too.
- Trees: Have a basin without a tree? Add a tree.
FUF will manage the permitting, sidewalk removal, soil, mulch and plants (including trees). Homeowners will contribute to the cost of permit and amenities. If you are a renter just ask your landlord for this great benefit. Funds have been set aside for neighbors who cannot afford the permit fees but can care for the garden.
