Eco-Patch Workday – January 9, 2022

Reduced in number by COVID caution, volunteer Eco-Patch members spend a beautiful Sunday morning carrying in mulch and weeding the patch. The December heavy rains were appreciated by the SF Native plants, responding by looking green and healthy. Of course the oxalis responded as well. The GBD mowed ssown some of the surrounding weeds. Adding a mulch pathway around the entiree patch will keep the weeds away as well as maing it easier for folks to walk around and see how the plants are doing. The photos below tell the story too.

Goodbye Pink Flags!

The Eco-Patch is growing! It’s time for the pink flags identifying the plant scientific name to be removed. The Admiral butterfly will not find much nutrition in the flags. Our advice to the butterfly is stick to the plants!
