Sidewalk Landscape Planting with Friends of the Urban Forest - Castro

  • Jul 11, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

What we'll be doing

We’ll prepare the gardens by installing stone edging, amending soil and distributing mulch. No prior experience is necessary. FUF will supply tools and guidance.  FUF planters are quite knowledgeable and you will have the opportunity to learn lots; just go ahead and ask as the day goes along.

I will be taking public transportation.  there's a bunch of ways to get there like market street which has a bunch of trollies that run a block from this site. if you can get to market street, you can get to this site - easy peezy.

What to wear/bring

• Bring water to stay hydrated.

• Bring sunglasses/hat and wear sunblock if the day is sunny.

• Wear work clothes that can get dirty -- your shoes, especially, will be covered in dirt by the end of planting.

• Gloves and other tools will be provided on site but if you have your own pair of garden gloves, bring those instead.


There is no mention of food for this event in the FUF post so i don't know if they'll be providing coffee and pastries in the morning. if they do, great. if they don't, best much a bite before leaving the house. And I'm not sure about lunch either although I have fielded to FUF.  Personally, I think it'd be fun if we grab a bite after.

    It seems like I finally have to cancel my RSVP now because of the super urgent project. I have to leave SFO in the early morning for the shooting project in Tokyo, Japan. So sorry...

    Hey everybody. Thanks for volunteering for this awesome event tomorrow. Looks like it's going to be a typical SF summer day... low 60's and partly sunny. Perfect weather for rolling up your sleeves and getting a little dirty. If you have any last-minute questions or concerns feel free to hit me up at (310) 733-9214. If not then I'll look forward to seeing you there!
