Removing Weeds From a Pathway/Stairway (#7)

On Sunday, May 26th, we will meet at 1:30 PM at Davidson Way & Walker Avenue and then we will work on Davidson Way between Walker and Vermont Street, which is East of and uphill from Walker. We will be closer to Walker Avenue than Vermont so anyone looking for us should go to that part of Davidson Way. To find the location on Google Maps put in "Davidson Way & Walker Avenue, Oakland, Ca".

We worked on this pathway just once before, June 10th, 2012. Then we removed two dozen garbage bags of clippings. This time there will be much less to remove. If we have too many volunteers I can lead them to other pathways in the Lakshore neighborhood to work on. The problem for this stairway is ivy overgrowth so the best gardening tool for attendees to bring is shearers. Brooms and dustpans would be good too. Also, everyone should bring gloves, water to drink & paper towels. I will bring 3 shearers plus enough garbage bags. We will work for 2 hours or a little less. If you can only work for one hour that's OK.
