New Herb Garden

Thanks to the dreams of Nora, Barbara and Arif, and the hard work of contractor Peter van der Sterre, we now have a beautiful seating area where our herb garden is planted. The seating is large enough to accommodate a class of John Muir School students and is in the sunniest part of the garden. This is especially good during the cold winter months. Thank you so much Peter, Lalo and Harold for all your great work on this major achievement to our garden!

We are SO HAPPY to have Nora Brereton back in the garden and totally recovered from her hiking accident three months ago. WELCOME BACK! We really missed you! She is the brains behind our Programs and does an amazing job networking and building community. One of her first orders of business was to have a meeting with the Koshland Park community gardeners on September 19, 2009.

We have two new Garden Coordinators.
Zela Rowlands will be coordinating the gardeners who already have plots in the Koshland Garden.

Arif Husain will be coordinating the potential gardeners on the waiting list for a plot in Koshland Garden.
