In July and August 2017, FUF is set to plant 160 trees - focusing along the proposed green corridor in the Portola Green Plan! We are excited to see investment in the neighborhood's desire to create a safe, engaging, and ecologically-minded connection between San Bruno Avenue and McLaren Park.
On April 22nd, 2017 the Portola community gathered to celebrate Earth Day in the Garden District. Over 150 community members dropped by - buying plants in support of a future public art project, playing ping pong, learning more about the history of the neighborhood, and sharing their ideas and preferences for greening in the Garden District.
On March 11th 2017, The Greenhouse Project, the Portola Urban Greening (PUG) committee, and the Portola Neighborhood Association organized the community to celebrate the Board of Supervisor's passage of a resolution officially recognizing the Portola as San Francisco's Garden District, marked by the unveiling of a beautiful hand-painted 40' x 20' sign.
