A group of neighbors concerned about the blighted section of San Jose Avenue between Randall Street and Monterey Avenue, with the support of SFDPW and Friends of the Urban Forest, are organizing a community clean up and (hopefully) tree planting for Saturday April 23 from 9am-2:30pm. For more information and to volunteer (on the events page), please visit their Facebook page at: http://tinyurl.com/4v6flr4
Please note that due to drug activity in the area, we expect to find used needles (sadly). Sharps containers and heavy canvas gloves will be provided for safe disposal. However, this activity is not recommended for children or pregnant women–just in case.
Important: we need to sign up more people for the tree planting in order to move forward with the April 23 date. Friends of the Urban Forest will have an information table set up at Canyon Market tomorrow, Thursday March 10 from 3:30-6:30 to answer questions and sign people up!
Please feel free to forward this to anyone who may be interested.
