This Saturday, April 22nd, is Earth Day and to celebrate there will be a celebration at Burrows Pocket Park tomorrow (San Bruno Ave & Burrows Street). The event is being co-sponsored by community volunteers from the Portola Neighborhood Association Portola Urban Greening and Goettingen Neighbors Group.
This will be a great opportunity to learn more and share your thoughts about the greening efforts in the neighborhood. Some of which include urban agriculture opportunities, F.U.F. tree plantings and the planned expansion of Burrows Pocket Park. If you haven’t heard, P.U.G. & the P.N.A. have secured the use of the land bordering the highway and adjacent to the existing Burrows Park. They need the community’s input on what the new park should be and how it should be used. Ideas discussed have ranged from a scuplture park & dog run to a community horseshoe court. Check out the space and give your 2 cents at the event tomorrow
In addition to all the Portola green planning there will a plant sale fundraiser to benefit the neighborhood groups. For fun and refreshments, there will also be an icecream pop-up from Churn Urban Creamery, tacos from La Placita, a live Jazz band, activities for kids and Portola t-shirt sales. Happy Earth Day Portola!
