NEWS FROM THE BLAKE GARDEN BLOG
The new ADA (American with Disabilities Act) compliant path has been completed. Students from the CED Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning Department and the ASLA (American Society of Landscape Architecture) student chapter came to the garden for a design workshop to prepare a planting plan of California native plants which they will also be responsible for planting.
But first we had to clear ivy, blackberries, and poison oak from the site, as well as open up the view by pruning some of the redwood trees in the area. We are waiting for the rain before we start planting. Hopefully that will be very soon. A step will be designed and built out of redwood that leads to the greenhouse. Plants and materials will be purchased with a money from The Green Initiative Granting Fund.
