Garden Day!

Location: Pasadena CA, 91103

Date: 7/19/2019 Spots Remaining: 44

Description

Quick Overview: We need volunteers to remove the existing vegetation, bring the gravel and mulch from the sidewalk to the garden, and put in the paths, bioswales and berms. 

Mission or Broader Program Description: At  the Pasadena Educational Foundation our mission is to support, enhance and supplement the programs, initiatives, and priorities of the Pasadena Unified School District. Our vision is for every PUSD student to receive an excellent education, to reach his or her full potential, and to become a joyful and fully engaged member of our democratic society. 

Impact: Pasadena Audubon is teaming up with California Native Plant Society’s San Gabriel Mountain Chapter to create a California native plant garden and outdoor classroom at Washington STEAM Elementary Magnet in Pasadena. This project is designed to bring birds and pollinators into the school for the kids to study.

We need volunteers to remove the existing vegetation, bring the gravel and mulch from the sidewalk to the garden, and put in the paths, bioswales and berms. The kids will do the planting in October. Come support this exciting community project which will benefit our public school kids for years to come.
