Lansing Street pollinator

Lansing Street pollinator

From our partner Gregory, who’s leading the planting of a pollinator garden at Rebar’s interim use project at 45 Lansing in downtown San Francisco:

Rebar and the Pollinator Partnership are putting a CA native wildflower meadow downtown. The idea is to repurpose a fallow lot into a beautiful living habitat for humming birds, butterflies and other pollinators.

If you are interested in helping out while learning more about gardening, irrigation and how to attract pollinators, then come on out Sat. April 3rd.

Some of what we will be doing includes:

  • Mounting 4’ pollinator plywood silhouettes (giant butterflies, hummingbirds, beetles etc.) on posts above the garden.
  • Creating planting circles filled with sheet mulch, compost and soil.
  • Installing drip irrigation.
  • Seeding CA native wildflowers.

The location: Large lot on Harrison between 1st and Essex streets.

Time and Date: Sat April 3rd 10 am-4:30pm

We promise to make this fun.

RSVP if you think you can make it,..even if just for an hour or so.

-Gregory
