California native tree Bonsai for Tenderloin Sidewalk garden

October 23, 2018

Our Theory is that native tree Bonsai would not require a Public works tree permit and would only require a permit for the native plant garden. The Bonsai project would be a part of a low-income housing employment and training program

Many property owners here in the tenderloin hate trees because they perceive them to be attractors of human waste, however, the large Nonprofit landlords employ an army of patience staff., You can see them every day hosing down the sidewalks, this is where you want to be a tree.

It is in the interests of the Hotel Sustainability council rooftop bee project to make the Tenderloin bloom, so I intend to try and enlist them to help us.

We need to build coalitions to convince Friends of the Urban Forest to do business here in the challenging environment of the Tenderloin. We need to build coalitions


The hotels should welcome not only trees but TNDC buildings all having sidewalk gardens because here we can make California native flowers common and within flying distance of the rooftop bees. (TNDC has agreed to sponsor trees)

Friends of the urban forest and the city economic development and job training folks all run summer youth job programs
