Earth Day with HandsOn Bay Area

We had a great work day on Saturday, April 17 in the Torii Gate Garden with volunteers of all ages.


The group was comprised primarily of a team from PG&E.


The major focus of our work was beginning a new stone beach for the pond in the garden.


Volunteers also did some excavation to install some electric conduit, and general weeding.


Everyone pitched in and got a lot accomplished.

And there was still time to take a break and check out the gardens’ newest residents– ducklings!
