Last November, Keep Oakland Beautiful gave away 5,700 daffodil and native bulbs, and countless wildflower seeds for planting in public spaces. Right now our daffodils are in bloom! Brodiaea, California poppies, and native wildflowers will soon follow!
Some of our volunteers shared pictures and information about their sites. Here are some highlights
Hillcrest Middle School
Amanda Lacau and her crew planted their bulbs and seeds on December 6, 2018 at the Hillcrest Middle School and across from the school’s nature area on the corner of Buckey and Mandalay. Looks like they had a great time!
Here are the results of all their hard work ...
Community Gardens at Lakeside Park
Tom Branca said his garden, which belongs to Landscape Horticulture/Merritt College, is maintained by the students of the Urban Gardening Class, which they have been doing for over 20 years. This was the first community garden at Lakeside Park. Students enjoyed planting the bulbs knowing that they would all be there to see them bloom and enjoy.
Oakland Animal Shelter
Michael Frazier has some nice blooms at the Oakland Animal Shelter.
