SCCAOR Work Party a huge success

IMG_0018

Goodbye and thanks so very much.

On Saturday, Sept. 6th, the Santa Clara County Association of Realtors (SCCAOR) completed their fall clean-up and rose care workday in partnership with MFPA and Adopt-a-Park. SCCAOR’s park project is the Jeffrey Fontana Memorial Rose Garden at McAbee Rd. & Golden Oaks Way.
Today it was time to remove the weeds and flowering-plum root growth, & dead-head & fertilize the roses. We hope to promote one more grand final rose bloom before the end of the year. When the roses go dormant in late January, we will prune the roses to a common height and get them ready for spring. This rose garden was planted & created by the South Bay Community Church on the in Nov. of 2010 as one of their “Beautiful Day” projects. MFPA had presented the need of a partnership with a local group to help maintain this garden; and SCCAOR stepped up to the plate. We are entering the 3rd year of this partnership and looking forward to keeping the momentum going.

A special thank you to Dave Walsh and Grace Garland of SCCAOR for coordinating this partnership! Thanks also to Matt and Jeni Lepow, owners of Almaden Valley Nursery for their contributions to the effort. Besides having SCCAOR on site this morning, we also had Scout Troop 262 come by after they had finished up their Saturday morning Scouting activity. Since we had the tools available, they took advantage of the situation and weeded and pruned the plants in their two scout projects on the east side of McAbee. It was good timing on their part as the water main had been off for a while and they were able to water all the plants. Thanks for pitching in Scouts!

As you can see, all is well at McAbee Road and Golden Oaks Way!
