Supporting community-based wetland restoration initiatives
When the City of Berkeley asked our Streets Alive! Campaign to plan a forgotten median strip on Oxford Street, just outside the Earth Island offices….we jumped at the opportunity! Originally planned to be paved over with concrete, the Oxford Median Strip is now a flourishing garden. Sage scrub, California Fuschia, Aloe, Euphorbia, Dudleya, and a variety of drought tolerant plants now enliven the street scape!
A special thanks to Brent Bucknam and Hyphae Design Laboratory for their design work and analysis!
