Our organization was established to save the park trees from being cut down by PG&E. Additionally, we have adopted both TJ Martin and Jeffrey Fontana Parks through the City’s Adopt-a-Park program.  Saturday, Oct. 17th., we had a volunteer work party at Tree 13 to trim and clean up the wild-looking patch directly across from the tree. The area is at the corner of Castello Drive and Golden Oak Way in Jeffrey Fontana Park.

Volunteers were checked in at 9:00 am and worked until almost noon. Water and snacks were provided by the Martin-Fontana Parks Association. Tools were provided by the San Jose Adopt-a-Park program. Volunteers trimmed shrubbery, took out volunteer oak saplings, and did lots of weeding.

About 15 to 20 volunteers showed up and made short work of it. It was so nice to see so many young folks show up and spend their Sat morning helping to maintain the beauty of our Parks.
