Flora and Fauna: Visit to the Vet; Some More Cahuenga Plants

I had one of those Saturdays where I was seemingly anywhere and everywhere; it began at the Pasadena Hilton where I sand the U.S. and Philippine national anthems for the Filipino martial arts tournament event at the Pacific Media Expo and ended in the Valley where I caught the Manny Pacquiao vs. Antonio Margarito fight […]

Cahuenga Library Fall Planting!

EHNC Vice President Eric Moore, EHNC Public Safety Committee member J.D. Brown and friends help plant Blue Festuca grasses at the Cahuenga Library.

The day has finally come for Saturday’s Cahuenga Library Fall Planting event. Much less pressure and more low-key than our Big Sunday event, yet a lot of preparation had […]

Shopping For Natives

This is a long way from East Hollywood…

Spent the day doing shopping for tomorrow’s Cahuenga Library Fall Planting event, buying native plants and seeds, taking me all sorts of places.

The first place was a nursery off in Moorpark, in Ventura County, some 55 miles away, past suburban shopping centers, tract homes and […]

What I’ve Been Up To – Fall Planting

Been busy organizing a Fall Cleanup/Planting/Seeding event at the Cahuenga Library. Six months after our Big Sunday beautification event, we’ve come to spruce up and expand the garden a little more. We’ll have a simpler event, with a smaller volunteer pool, but hopefully just as great of a result nevertheless.

Plus, I finally finished editing […]

Cahuenga Library Mini Clean-Up, October Edition

It’s the first Saturday of the month, and we’ve reached October already!

A few days ago I got an email from a Tanya Jung, who was the president of a “local community service club” who found out about our monthly mini clean-up events from the Big Sunday volunteer calendar. She said she would bring in […]

Plant[ing] Day

Even though this wasn’t the first Saturday of the month, I went to the Cahuenga Branch Library today to plant my adopted salvia spathacea (Hummingbird Sage) from yesterday’s Park[ing] Day festivities in the back entryway of the Library. Having discovered the Office of Community Beautification finally retrieved their tools we borrowed since late April, I […]

Cahuenga Library Mini-Cleanup, September Edition

Being Labor Day weekend, there was predictably a smaller volunteer pool this month for the Cahuenga Library Mini-Clean Up, with the dedicated Damon and Guia Wood helping out. And the weather was rather warm, too. But fortunately we only had a smaller task at hand. The mound of garbage that usually piles up next to […]

Cleaning Up The Library, August Edition

Today being the first Saturday of the month, it’s once again time to tend to the Cahuenga Library Botanical Gardens for our monthly mini-cleanup of our 94-year old LAPL branch‘s grounds!

This being August, I wondered if Summer weather might be a deterrent for people, but apparently so far this season, […]
