Help Us Save Our Natives This Thursday!

The Cahuenga Branch Library will be fumigated on August 24-27 and the library staff have notified us that the City plans to remove or cut any plants within 18 inches of the building next week! The six varieties of California native plants (Giant chain fern, hummingbird sage, coral bells, Douglas iris, evergreen currant and western sword fern) in the rear entrance of the library that we planted in December, are  the highlight of our garden, and so we have to temporarily transplant them into 5-gallon containers for the next couple of weeks in order to save them. 

We're looking for a few volunteers to help us out on the evening of Thursday, August 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. to dig up the plants and put them in the containers. If there's anyone with a pickup truck or cargo van that can transport them to a temporary location four blocks away that would be great as well! We have tools, but you're welcome to bring your own shovel. 

The Cahuenga Branch Library is at 4591 Santa Monica Blvd (corner Madison) in East Hollywood. Map here: For more info, email
