San Francisco’s Favorite Outdoor Volunteer Program
Don't be alarmed if you pass through Rotary Meadow and find a patch of bare soil in one small area. The meadow is being replanted this winter with several new species of grasses and plants which are not already found within the garden area. This is part of the intent of the original demonstration area, to determine what succeeds and what doesn't. The area where the work is taking place was one of the lowest performing of the areas planted in 2004. Now six years after the original planting, rather than filling in with a denser growth, this area has become thinner which has created an opportunity for weeds to take root. All of the desirable plants were removed and transplanted, and seed was collected prior to the work beginning. Check our Events listings every few days if you want to come and participate in the replanting which will take place over the next few weeks (December 20–January 21).
