Tidy up corner of Solana Beach

SOLANA BEACH — The Solana Beach Garden Club, Solana Beach Civic & Historical Society, and North County Transit District are working together to clean up and beautify the highly visible, undeveloped lot at the northwest corner of Lomas Santa Fe Drive and Cedros Avenue, adjacent to the train station.The group is hoping for 60 volunteers – 30 volunteers from 9 a.m. to noon and 30 from 1 to 4 p.m. – on March 2. Workers are needed to remove unsightly weeds, while preserving the existing desirable vegetation, trimming several existing pine trees and placing mulch to create a pathway. The sponsors are asking volunteers to bring their own equipment such as shovels, rakes, hoes, garden clippers, saws, weedwackers and wheelbarrows. NCTD will supply a waster bin for weeds, branches, etc.

Contact Michele Stribling to volunteer for this project. Indicate a.m. or p.m. volunteers and what garden equipment you can bring.
