Saturday’s Detroit Steps event

The cleanup day for the Detroit Steps on Saturday June 8th was a great success — and Board of Supervisors President Norman Yee visited to show his support. Recently the Detroit Steps Project received a District 7 Participatory Budgeting grant. More about the project here.  A big thank-you to Canyon Market for the donation of food and coffee, and Flora Grub for the donation of plants. All photos except the first one by Flora Clerque Photography.

Prompt response — DPW trims Circular Ribbon Garden oak tree

The San Francisco Department of Public Works took over care of the city’s street trees a couple years ago.  Here is that voter-approved proposition in action — a big oak tree in the Circular Ribbon Garden needed a good deal of attention, and a request recently brought DPW workers out to work on it. They did a great job. Thank you DPW!

The Circular Ribbon Garden

By Pat Moore

In 2011, after three years of intense work by a roster of some 35+ volunteers, Circular Avenue was changed from an unofficial dump into a beautiful SF Park: the Circular Avenue Ribbon Garden, so-named because it consists of the 6′ of land between the curb and the 280 Freeway fence, running the 3/4 mile stretch from Monterey Blvd. to Havelock, near CCSF. It’s cleaner now, but needs regular attention. And we have plans for the future!
