Hello Friend and Supporter of the Greenway,
I hope that you can come to our next Work Party on Saturday October 2 from 9:00am to 12:00pm. If you’re planning to come to the work party please send me an email at
Please let me know no later than Tuesday September 28.
Here’s a description of the main tasks that we’ll do:
- Weed the area of the new Native Meadow. This is the start of our new Native Meadow Project! The first step is to remove the existing weedy grasses. The best tools for this will be hand mattocks and rakes
- Cut the sprouts the are growing from the stumps and roots of trees removed by SFPW in 2017. The best tools for this will be loppers and small shears
- Collect trash The Greenway gets plenty of trash tossed down from the Bosworth sidewalk. If you find cleaning up the landscape to be a satisfying pursuit, we’ve got a trash-picker for you!
If you have your own tools, please bring them If you don’t have tools we can lend them to you – just come to the top of the pedestrian ramp where Chilton Avenue meets Bosworth St. My red Subaru will be parked there at 9:00AM on Saturday morning with tools that you can use.
For more information about the tasks or to discover which tools we expect that you’ll need, please email me or telephone me (number below).
We need to follow San Francisco’s current rules in response to the pandemic. We will be working in the open air so generally need not wear masks. However, please bring a mask with you and, if you need to work closely with any other volunteers and they feel more comfortable wearing a mask, please do the same.
I hope that you’ll be able to join the Work Party and look forward to working with you on Saturday October 2.
Many thanks for all that you do for the Greenway!
