When: Friday April 28th, 9 am–Noon

Where: Meet at the top of the main staircase, just behind the Fort Mason General's Residence. If no one is there to greet you, please walk into the gardens – we are already working on the site!  Registration is required.

Please join us at the Black Point historic gardens for a day of land stewardship, pollinators, and poetry! We'll spend time maintaining our native wildflower gardens, a pollinator haven, and explore the ways poetry intersects with and is inspired by nature. If you have a favorite poem, or poetry of your own, please feel welcome to bring it along to share.


Groups of five or more may require special arrangements and must be confirmed in advance. Visit our Groups volunteer page to learn more.
