CORBETT SLOPE GARDEN DAY - NEXT SAT

REMINDER: OUR NEXT NEIGHBORHOOD MEETING WILL BE ON THURSDAY, APRIL 26TH, 7:30PM.  MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

It’s been a while since our last cleanup day on the Slope, but good things have happened in the meantime;

The land was officially transferred back to DPW;
A DPW crew was out last week and did some major tree pruning on several of the cypresses and flowering eucalyptus trees;
And, I’ve been speaking with DPW engineers about the possibility of installing retaining walls on the Market Street side to prevent the rock wall from continuing to crumble onto the sidewalk, as well as a more remote possibility of installing a few retaining walls within the park.  These would enable us to create some more level planting areas and a better system of pathways.

Our next workday will be a week from Saturday - April 14th, from 10AM - 2PM.  I’ll bring some waters and juice drinks - and cookies.  Bring a snack to share if you’d like.  
No gardening experience necessary.  We’ll have most of the tools there, but if you have a favorite pair of gloves or clippers, bring them along.

At 11AM we’ll take a break to discuss plans for the future of the Corbett Slope.  Please try and make it if you’d like to be involved on any level.  

See you next Saturday!!
- Gary
