Yesterday at the monthly Panhandle Park work day, neighborhood volunteers teamed with the Park's gardener and youth from Larkin Street to care for the plants around the playground - the most diverse area of park (plant-wise, that is).
The crew on Saturday
With three sets of helping hands it doesn't take long to fill a truck load of soil.
Around the playground, plants grow in barrels and in the soil. A little extra mulch will help these plants thrive.
Will helped spread chips around the shade garden and talked about how much the plants had grown since they were planted a year ago.
With Kevin's daffodils in bloom, it was a good time to work on adding soil amendments to this planted area, which also has tulips and artichokes.
