Along the western edge of Tasajara Park there is a passage and set of steps connecting Barrett and Alva Avenues. And for many years it included some empty square plots of soil suitable for mini-gardens if only someone would plant them. Then three years ago, girl scouts from Troop 31352 took up the challenge. Encouraged by the Trekkers and with plants from the El Cerrito Community Garden Network, the girls planted native flowers. But the girls moved on to other things and sadly the the planting began to start looking a bit worn and weedy.
But the plants were not forgotten a this year the scouts returned to refresh and renew their work. We would like to thank the girls and their troop leaders for helping keep out parks beautiful.
Trekker board member Pam Austin took the lead in getting the girls involved again and took the pictures below of their work.
