1. KOSHLAND GARDEN: PLANS AND PLANTING

Fall is approaching, and although the days are warm, the nights are
getting longer and cooler. The BEET Rangers have helped us prepare our
beds and plant out a lot new fall crop that love this time of year:
kale, broccoli, chard, lettuce, cabbage and collard greens. The
lettuce is already getting pretty big, and we will soon be using it
for salads with our upcoming cooking class in collaboration with
Modern Tea and the Western Addition Beacon.

John Muir Elementary students are learning about seed cycles, and began their classes for the semester by harvesting carrots from this
summer’s crop- this week they are planting carrots which they will harvest when classes end in December, giving them the opportunity to
observe the entire cycle of the plants life. Red tail hawks have beenvisiting us again! The students were able to see them up close as they perched on the trees above us. We feel so lucky to have these special visitors!

Upcoming plans and changes in the garden will be constructing
terracing of the John Muir Elementary School beds on the North slope
of the garden. The terracing will make gardening easier and more
accessible for the students, and will help retain the water run-off
that occurs in the winter months. We are looking forward to the
change!

2. BEET RANGERS AND GREEN JOBS NOW!!!

The BEET Rangers participated in the Green Jobs Now national day of action. We attended the fabulous Breaking Ground Conference for youth hosted by San Francisco Parks Trust on September 27th. Two of the BEET Rangers, Jessica Farkas and Tanea Lunsford, talked on a panel of youth about Green Jobs and why they are important. All of the participants on the panel shared really important views on how Green Jobs improve their communities, help them feel self-sufficient and productive, and provide a way for them to connect to their environment and green space in the city. We are proud to be part of the Green Job movement, connecting youth with opportunities to match environmental stewardship with economic justice.

4. ZUCHINNI BREAD RECIPE

We are thrilled to be working with Modern Tea and the Western Addition
Beacon to host another cooking class for John Muir Elementary School
youth this fall. We began classes on Monday, October 5th, by
harvesting beans at the Victory Garden in front of City Hall. We
admired the kale planted by the BEET Rangers earlier in July, and the
students got very excited about all the different colors of beans
inside the various stages of the painted lady runner beans. Definitely
a great start to a great program!

Here is a fun fall recipe, to use all those zuchinnis that are
flooding the farmers markets this time of year.

1. Koshland Garden Makeover!

Wow! Things have really changed fast in the garden, and it is looking great! After our black acacia tree was accidentally cut down during it’s scheduled tree trimming, we have been hard at work imagining ways to take advantage of the new sunny spot left in its place. We had the area where the tree once stood cleared and leveled, and are planning to put a picnic table there, so that students from John Muir Elementary School can have a spot to eat the snacks we harvest during their classes in the garden. We also
hope community gardeners, visitors and neighbors will also enjoy the new picnic table, which will be installed in the near future! In the meantime, do come by to admire the new compost bins that are being constructed, and enjoy the last blooms of the sweetpeas.

2. BEET Rangers at Slow Food Nation


The BEET Rangers have had a really busy summer. To catch up from where we left off in our last newsletter, we have gone biking in Tennesse Valley with Trips for Kids, helped install the Victory Garden in front of City Hall, weeded and planted at Patricia’s Green, farmed at both Green Gulch Farm and Alemany Farm, and helped out with compost at Garden for the Environment. Whew! This past weekend we went to a jam-making workshop through the youth programs at Slow Food Nation. Everyone got to take home their own marmalade made from local lemons, yum!

1. Koshland Garden in Bloom

The Garden got a bit of a makeover this past weekend, thanks to Rebuilding Together, a group of dedicated volunteers who came to help out on April 26th. We planted Columbines and Coral Bells in the shade section of the garden, and they look lovely- come enjoy their blooms this month! Although the tulips are starting to retreat, our local native Douglas Irises are blooming all around the park and garden, but not for long, come see them quick! The plums are starting to grow on the tree, it looks like we be eating lots of them later on this summer! All the berries have bounced back from winter slumber, and are looking lush and soon-to-be delicious.

It is time to bid farewell to the epic amounts of chard and broccoli that filled the garden this winter. We are now preparing beds for tomatoes, lemon cucumber, and new crops of lettuce. Our new peas are looking good, thriving in the partial shade, which provides some cool relief for them on these hot, dry days. Spring Festival is just around the corner, so come see all the new plants, and take home some of your own!

2. BEET Rangers Hard at Work!

The BEET Rangers have been hard at work in Koshland Garden, learning how to prepare a bed of healthy soil, and how to plan a vegetable garden using seasonal planting charts and crop rotations. We also enjoyed the opportunity to visit Chrissy Field Center on their Earth Day celebration on April 19th. At the celebration we handled different snakes, lizards, and tortises through Tree Frog Treks, and met with the Inspiring Young Emerging Leaders (IYEL) youth program at Chrissy Field, learning about the projects they are working on, and possibilities for the BEET Rangers to be involved with IYEL in the future. We are looking forward to a naturalist-led hike in the Marin Headlands on May 3rd, where we will learn about local ecology and conservation priciples.

4. New Native Plant Garden!

Rebuilding Together San Francisco has left their mark on John Muir Elementary School!
We now have a beautiful native plant garden on Webster between Page and Oak. There are still some non-native plants in the mix from the original planting, but we have filled in a lot of bare patches in the garden with gorgeous plants form Bay Natives Nursery. They include White Sage, Ceanothus, Seaside Daisy, White Currant, Red Currant, Sword Fern and more! It looks beautiful, and we look forward to the garden filling out to provide habitat to a lot of native bees and other garden pollinators including butterflies and hummingbirds. We are so grateful to the dedicated volunteers of SF Rebuilding Together for their hard work cleaning the garden and helping us create this beautiful garden! To learn more about Rebuilding Together SF, visit their website at www.rebuildingtogethersf.org. For more info about Bay Natives Nursery, find them online at www.baynatives.com

As well as a new native plant garden, SF Rebuilding together helped us repair and plant in the container gardens on the yard of John Muir Elementary School. They are filled with blossoming lavender, salvia, yarrow, and lambs ear. It’s beautiful, and the students are very excited to take care of their own flower garden boxes as an addition to their experience growing vegetables at Koshland Garden. The tree wells on Page and Webster street around the school have been repainted and seeded with California Poppy and other native wildflowers, all of it looks so great! We love Rebuilding Together SF!

1. Spring in the Garden

It’s officially spring! The garden is teeming with life, ready for a new
cycle. Come see the raspberries returning from winter slumber- there are new
leaves on the stalks, and tiny flowers are getting ready to become raspberries
over the next few months. Students from the Bay School came to visit last
Friday, helping harvest our old lettuce beds, making new space for peas in our
crop rotation. This month we will start preparing beds for our warm-loving
plants such as potatoes, zuchinni, cucumber, and even trying sweet potato this
year! Come catch the last of the pink blossoms on the crabapple trees, and
admire the tulips in some of the community garden plots before they finish for
the season!

The herb garden work is still under way- so far we have laid the foundation,
and will be starting construction this month. Very exciting! Also, community
garden volunteer and future community gardener Will Deeg will soon be creating
a sample container garden, to give folks ideas for what can be planted in
containers at home. Look for all these new changes sprouting up this month!

**Also, we’ve got loads of rainbow chard right now, so if you’d like some,
help yourself.

4. Rebuilding Together San Francisco is coming to Koshland Garden and John Muir Elementary School!

Rebuilding Together SF will be coming to help “green” John Muir Elementary
School on Saturday, April 26th. This fabulous program is focused on
revitalizing the on-site educational garden at John Muir, as well as the tree
wells on Page and Webster Street, which surround the school. We will be
transforming the front garden at John Muir into a native plant corridor,
focused on creating habitat that will encourage pollinators such as bees,
butterflies, and hummingbirds. We will also incorporate native plants which are
medicinal to humans, to provide a learning opportunity for students to see the
many uses and values of protecting and encouraging native plants. A sneak peek
of plants to be included in the revitalization include white sage, wild ginger,
yarrow, red and white flowering current, our local lupine, coral bells,
ceanothus, grindelia, and more! To learn more about Rebuilding Together SF,
visit their website at www.rebuildingtogethersf.org

3. BEET RANGER UPDATE

The BEET Ranger program is a green job training internship we are
offering to Western Addition teens. The youth will be paid a stipend
to get training in Park Maintenance, Recycling, Composting, Nutrition,
Organic Gardening and more. They will participate in park clean-ups,
help out with our Lettuce Grow summer camp, and lead a community event
to share the knowledge they gain with their peers. In turn, we will be
helping them find job opportunities in the growing field of green
jobs, to help make environmentalism more than just a cause, but a
potential way of life that can support them financially.

At this point we have received applications, and begun
interviewing potential youth. The program starts next
month, and we are very excited!
