On Saturday, Aug. 25, volunteers will meet at Sunset Boulevard and Irving Street, at 9 a.m., to continue an effort to beautify and maintain the two-mile corridor on Sunset Boulevard between Sloat Boulevard and Irving Street. Friends of Sunset Boulevard is a project supported by SF Supervisor Katy Tang’s office in and effort to engage neighbors to take a hands-on role in maintaining the green space along the popular thoroughfare.
The two-hour cleanup will include the installation of a toolbox near 37thAvenue and Irving Street. Neighbors interested in volunteering to keep Sunset Boulevard clean and green will receive a key to the toolbox nearest their home.
The toolbox contains gloves, litter picks, shovels, garbage bags, compost bags and other gardening tools. The toolbox also has a log where volunteers can leave notes and comments, which will be regularly monitored by SF Department of Public Works’ staff, which will be responding to issues as they arise.
Tang’s office has partnered with the SF Department of Public Works, SF Public Utilities Commission and Climate Action Now!, a San Francisco-based nonprofit working on cultivating environmental leadership.
The partnership, along with community volunteers, is dedicated to three main goals:
Weeding and litter pick-up; maintaining existing rain gardens along Sunset Boulevard; and tree planting.
