MSPC Cancels Events & Reduces Programming
Mission Street Parks Conservancy has reduced the scope of its work in order to protect our volunteers and meet Governor Brown’s requirements for social distancing. Here is a summary of what we are and are not doing.
Events. MSPC has canceled all public events through June, including our spring plant sale, first Saturday garden tours, donor appreciation garden party, and rose garden open house.
Gardening. Gardening activities are limited to a group of no more than 6 people on Tuesday morning and a social distance of at least 6 feet. Volunteers may obtain permission to garden individually as well. Despite these limitations, MSPC will be able to make progress on our annual garden maintenance program as well as a few special projects, such as a new flower bed near the green house.
Cataloguing & Interpretation. Volunteers continue to work in the field and remotely on identifying, surveying, and labeling the park’s woody plant collection and landscape beds.
Research & Planning. MSPC continues to research and describe the park’s landscape and history in anticipation of the City’s upcoming Cultural Landscape Plan for Bush’s Pasture Park, as well as developing designs for several unused or neglected areas of the park.
