Learning About Native Plants & Edible Herbs In OMI/ Excelsior Living Library & Think Park

 

Denman Middle School students learned about native plants, uninvited “weeds”, and which of these species are actually edible.  Afterwards, they explored the Living Library gardens searching for tasty greens to throw into their salad.

In a scavenger hunt, they found chickweed, cleavers, mint, nasturtium, and dandelion, to name a few.

Then they harvested heads of lettuce, washed and cut them up, and whipped up a delicious salad dressing—with fresh picked lemons from the garden.

All in ALL, in was a fun feast for the middle schoolers!

Update On Dramatic Transformation of Seneca Avenue Streetscape Into Ecological CA Native Rain Gardens

Continuing with our earlier post on Transformation of Seneca Avenue Streetscape in San Francisco, we want to share more updates on the progress of this unique urban greening project by Life Frames, Inc. & A Living Library.  Seneca Avenue, between San Jose and Cayuga Avenues in the Islais Creek Watershed, has long been a wide, barren, long hill, contributing greatly to overflowing sewers and flooding in the Cayuga Valley and Islais Creek Watershed. 

After cutting and removing tons of concrete from the site, the transformation of this former heat island into lush CA Native Rain Gardens has finally begun. Over 200 students from Leadership High School, as well as other community members, have actively participated in planting California native  trees and understory plants on the site. Shown here are a few pictures documenting the dedicated hard work of the youth and adults in transforming this previously desolate space, into fertile, blue/green, multifunctional native landscapes.
