Wednesday April 10 at Hansen Park - Roses

Tuesday April 30 at 9 am starting at 9 a.m. at Hansen Park - Roses

Corner of First Street and Holmes in Livermore

The park is a small island park, surrounded by streets. In the small park is a rose garden, a fountain, a sculpture, and a old fashioned wagon on display. There's no sign for the park.

Our March effort involved spreading Preen on the beds to inhibit weeds. Lydia, the LAVGC Hansen Park coordinator, has done a tremendous job in getting donations of fertilizer from Kellogg (enough to fertilize all of the roses) and alfalfa pellets at a reduced cost from Livermore Feed and Farm Supply. Alfalfa pellets are wonderful fertilizer, especially for roses. LAVGC has also been fortunate to have received a donation of two pallets (70 bags each) of worm castings from Sanctuary Soil and Feed in Vernalis, and one of the pallets went to Hansen Park. In April, we had a work party to apply the 70 bags (~1 ton) of worm castings (donated by Mitch Davis of Sanctuary Soil and Feed), ~9 bags (450 pounds) of organic fertilizer (donated by Kelloggs and delivered to the City yard by Western Garden Nursery), and 350 pounds of alfalfa pellets sold to us at a reduced cost by Livermore Feed and Farm Supply.
