There are a number of large, spikey agaves growing alongside Ryan Road Park. These South American plants have been on our list for a while now to be removed. They make it impossible to clean around them and they trap a lot of litter. We plan to replace them with indigenous vegetation, starting with a layer of ground cover. We will need all the help we can get to get the agaves out of the way, so join us!
About Gardening activities
During gardening events, we go out to a public greening site and work on general maintenance, cleaning, and upkeep of the plot. These events are key in our activities and they have a huge public impact. By keeping (often formerly abandoned) plots in good shape, the public space often transforms from an eyesore and underused space to an inviting space.
During the gardening events we often work on chores like cutting back or removing grass, cleaning up the space (littering is often an issue), removing weeds, taking care of the plants, and improving the soil. You do not need any gardening experience to join these events. The only thing that really matters is your enthusiasm to participate in public gardening! But if you do have some equipment, always feel free to bring this along. Especially useful are:
