November workday at the Panhandle

A super group of volunteers joined yesterday's workday at the Panhandle Park, joined by Liz (center in vest) a gardener newly-assigned to our sector of Golden Gate Park.

We took up the challenge of aggressively removing weeds and over-abundant native plants in the rain garden, in order to free up some space for a number of new plants and maximize the biodiversity there. 

With plants provided by the RPD nursery, we planted some additional primrose, cinquefoil, and currant into the garden, as well as one new species: sambucus racemosa. Looking forward to abundant rain, perhaps coming in the next few days, to give these plants a good long drink.

Join us November 12 as we diversify the plants in the Panhandle Park

Our next community workday in the Panhandle is in a week and a half:

Panhandle Park Community Workday
Saturday, Nov 12
9 am - 12 noon
All are welcome. Tools and gloves are provided. Wear sturdy shoes and dress in layers. 

The rains have begun, and that means it's planting season! Our rain garden near the playground was planted in early 2013 with dozens of species native to California. It's time for updates to the garden so join us for the fun of planting new plants into the garden and move a few others around. We'll also have a variety of other tasks, like sweeping, raking and weeding.
