6.10.17-KP-Wkday-Starbucks_IMG_0580Koshland Garden got a spiffing up on Saturday, June 10, 2017 with the help of a great crew from Starbucks. Thanks to CommunityGrows Advisory Board member Jaromy Schmidt, who manages a Starbucks stores in San Francisco, many of his team came out to support us and brought delicious coffee. Adrian Almquist, Garden Programs Manager led the morning, and got people weeding the pathways, composting, and pruning back blackberries, ivy and mock orange plants.6.10.17-KP-Wkday-Starbucks_IMG_05866.10.17-KP-Wkday-Starbucks_IMG_0583Long time neighborhood volunteer Richard Johnson trimmed the ivy along the ramp of the peace wall. CommunityGrows ED joined the day to meet and greet, take photos and organize the garden gloves, finding 23 lonely right handers! At 1:00 PM some of the community gardeners came by to check out the upcoming plans for garden renovations. 6.10.17-KP-Wkday-Starbucks_IMG_05936.10.17-KP-Wkday-Starbucks_IMG_0589A couple new gardeners were thrilled to finally get a plot and get off the three year wait list. 6.10.17-KP-Wkday-Starbucks_IMG_0584Thank you everyone for a great day.
