We took a tour of some of our gardens in Long Beach to get updates and check on the progress at the Lincoln Park/City Hall project. I hoped to glean what is left of the gardens but unfortunately we were denied access. The Lincoln Park gardens are now blocked off and set for demolition.
In fact they were spreading the fencing as we watched.
This guerrilla garden has three areas. We planted this guerrilla garden in October 2009. The grass had died in this spot but the other two areas still had grass.
In as few years the grass died off in the other areas. So we added more plants to those areas also.
But now the grass is making a comeback in some spots.
2016 has been a very busy year so far for the SoCal Guerrilla Gardening Club. We have planted hundreds of plants and dozens of tree so far. Google stopped listing our post so this is really a test post ti see if we show up on their search.

This is the same center median we gardened at last year with Occidental College for MLK Day of volunteerism.
I had a great time again doing a day of volunteering for MLK Day with the students from Occidental College, including some guys from Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and Jacob Vigos of URAA adding more plants to the garden we started last MLK Day.
The guys from Sigma Alpha Epsilon making quick work of the project.
Cam Dusting just arrived from Melbourne, Australia for school at Occidental College the week before.
