Sisterhood Gardens Opening Day
A new San Francisco community garden on the corner of Brotherhood Way and Arch Street broke ground with its inaugural public planting day on February 11, 2017, and the weather obliged with a sunny reprieve from recent winter rains. Four Just One Tree Meyer lemon trees now stand in the Sisterhood Gardens‘ sloping tree orchard overlooking rows of wooden planter boxes that were weeded and prepped by community members.
This new green space lights up the OMI (Oceanview, Merced Heights, Ingleside) neighborhoods, and locals who attended its first planting worked under the guidance of members of SF Department of Public Works, Chinese Progressive Association, and SF Environment.
With parents and kids shoveling side by side, holes were dug, gopher wires were laid, and soil was topped as JOT trees found a new home to spread their roots.
