Hard to believe how time flies!
Tomorrow is May First and the day coincides with the First Sunday of the month clean-up at the park.
The First Sunday meetings started in February 2007. This Sunday will mark our 40th clean-up!

Here below are photos of the Daffodil Planting on the first Sunday in November 2007. Our dedicated neighbor Margaret Crayton (in the blue shirt) was stalwart picking up the bulbs for our park each fall...back in the days when the city had money for such efforts. The two top photos show how over the years, pockets of daffodils have naturalized along the fence. Take a close look at how barren either side of the fence looked four years ago, before neighbors beautified the front of the park with drought tolerant plantings!

Breaking Ground on June 6th, 2010

Here is a short film about the day we broke ground on the vegetable garden and how the story was covered by Oakland Local.
