SLRC launched this project in the spring of 2015, engaging community members to help clear a large space of public land adjacent to the pedestrian path that was not being taken care of. Since then, SLRC and community volunteers have planted more than 100 drought-tolerant—mostly California native—plants on the site. The space has been weeded, watered, and mulched, and the planting of a succulent garden has begun as well. You can find a list of the native plants SLRC has introduced to this public space here.
SLRC is happy to provide pointers and gear for volunteers who join the effort to beautify this highly visible space. We can always use more hands. If you'd like to be notified of upcoming beautification events, let us know here.
