Old Town Native Plant Landscape Needs You and Your Wheelbarrow, Wagon or Cart

  • Old Town Historical State Park 4002 Wallace Street San Diego, CA, 92110 United States (map)

We will be placing toaster-sized rocks (or larger) to protect irrigation heads and plants. A toaster-sized rock weighs over 40 lbs, so we need ways to move them safely. That is where your wagon, garden cart, or wheelbarrow will be really handy, since the landscape’s volunteer coordinators only have one wheelbarrow between them.

The rock will be delivered the day before in a pile next to the landscape. Volunteers will excavate shallow pits and then move the rocks into them. We always do a little weeding too, so shovels, hand tools and gloves will be handy. Bring your own, or borrow ours.

The Landscape is at the corner of Taylor and Congress Streets. Park in the lot east of Taylor and south of Calhoun. 

At the end of the work party those who want can go for a no-host lunch.
