San Mateo County Department of Public Works are sponsoring the third annual Coastal Clean Up Day and inviting South San Franciscans to clean Colma Creek with fellow community members.
Colma Creek is a hot spot for trash and debris that gets washed into it via street storm drains, and that can make its way into the bay and ocean.
Volunteers will be taking part in the clean up from all over the county.
Participants will receive a free reusable tote bag, while supplies last, to get ready for the single-use plastic bag ban to take effect in the County next year. There will also be prizes given and Community Service Hour forms for students.
The clean-up site will be Utah Ave. and Harbor Way and run from 9 a.m. to noon.
South City's Improving Public Places committee is sponsoring a garden party from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Orange Memorial Park, in the Fernekes Recreation Building.
MayAnn Nardo of 7 Petals Floral Design, Pete Carcione of the Green Grocer, and Tom Bressan of Urban Farmers, Joe Cannon of San Bruno Mountain Watch, and Sean Garrone of Green Shelter Landscaping will speak at the event.
At the garden party will also be a silent auction for over 20 items, including gourmet garden-related baskets, Opportunity Drawing items and sculpture garden tours. Food will be provided by Ulisess Catering.
Tickets cost $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Expect to see special speakers and demonstrations, a silent auction, garden-related venfors and a Container Garden Contest.
