Turk and Lyon this Saturday -- The corner will rock, buzz, twang, and throb as gardeners, neighbors and friends get in the dirt, amend the soil, shovel, rake, edge new beds, and settle-in new plants. All to the accompaniment of live bluegrass, jug band, folk, and jazz tunes.

Erich Silvester (Hot Steel & Cool Ukulele) will delve into his rich repertoire plucking favorites from the jug band revival of the 1960s to his latest jumping uke sets from last month's San Francisco Free Folk Festival. NOPA's own Wigg Party will also send up the hill its hot band-buds to keep the green glow on the corner through the afternoon.

The day's line-up for work and play goes like this:
10 am
  • gardeners assemble
  • work begins: weeding, sifting soil, shoveling, adding new soil, edging beds, planting
  • tour and description of sidewalk plans -- what will & won't be happening
  • chances for door prizes, plant sales, kids stuff
12 - 2pm
  • Green Lunch provided (donations welcomed)
12:30 - 4pm
  • Live Music begins
  • Building Tours
  • More cool door prizes & kids play
Stop by for a look, lend a hand, check out the bands, get a great lunch
Saturday, July 23, 10am to 4pm
