Removing Weeds From a Pathway/Stairway

We meet in front of the Starbucks on Lakeshore near Mandana (as it has 2 restrooms) at 1 PM. Then at 1:10 PM we will leave by walking North on Lakeshore and cross Mandana. Then we turn left & walk up Mandana to Walker Avenue and turn right. We will walk a little further and then see the pathway on our right.

This pathway is called Davidson Way and the part we will be working on is between Vermont Street & Walker Avenue. The exact area we will be working on is closer to Walker Avenue so anyone deciding to find us at the pathway should go to that part. The address to find it on Google Maps is "Davidson Way & Walker Avenue, Oakland, Ca".

The problem for this stairway is ivy overgrowth so the best gardening tool for attendees to bring is shearers. Also, one should bring gloves, water to drink & paper towels. We will be working for 2 hours or a little less.

    We made quick work of the ivy, with many helping hands. Sorry I couldn't stay longer. Met a number of people who were using the stairway and who might have been recruited for Howard's and my various Meetup groups.

    We did twice the work that I thought we could do because so many volunteers, 7, showed up. 3 volunteers showed up individually who were not members of this group: Joyce, Robert & Lynn. Kerry showed up late, but she kept on working with me to 3:50 PM. Bob Branstrom and Joyce arrived first and were already working before the rest of us showed up. Bob took & uploaded photos here.

    I was lame and late because I was watching soccer, so I missed the bulk of the cleaning, but it was very exciting that several people were there and the cleanup went quickly. These cleanup-meetups only last a couple of hours and are not really hard work at all, but they really make a difference for the landscape. I hope that others will attend and participate. The more people, the faster the work, and it really gives you a sense of ownership of your community.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
