We had a very productive and entertaining morning at the last Greenway work day. The weather turned out to be ideal for us. Many thanks to the wonderfully enthusiastic gardeners who were able to join us. A special shout out to Canyon Market for providing such delicious coffee to get us started in the morning.

- Mowed the remaining fennel – it really does look better without the fennel forest!
- Uprooted or cut off the sprouts that have emerged from the roots and stumps of the trees removed by SFPW in Nov 2017 – we’ve worked on this task for many months and we’re almost done!
- Uprooted more of the French Broom shrubs that have started to colonize the Greenway between Chilton and Burnside. Many thanks to David Hammer for lending us his amazing weed wrench that made this task much easier.
- Weeded and cut back encroaching vegetation around the 15-gallon trees that we planted in December 2017 – this is one of those jobs that we have to do each year and we made a good start on it.
- Weeded and mulched the planted area at the head of the Chilton cul-de-sac – this has got to be the best-cared-for part of the entire Greenway!
It was a very satisfying party rounded off with some delicious sandwiches shared in the shade of the Stone Pines at the head of the Chilton Avenue cul-de-sac.
We’re planning another work-party for a Saturday in March when we’ll get the Greenway ready for the dry season. I hope to see you then.
Many thanks for all that you do for the Greenway,
