On Greening El Cerrito Day, three members of Friends of the Cerrito Theater along with three people who help run our favorite theater, planted two redbud trees in the sidewalk strip behind the theater on Kearney Street.

Kudos are due to Friends Bonnie MacKenzie, whose in-depth knowledge of gardening was a godsend, and to Art Tressler and Dave Weinstein. Besides planting the trees, we weeded and removed debris.

But more needs to be done! There is agapanthus to divide, groundcover to install, and general upkeep. We may also want to do some native plantings in the future to supplement the native species that are already growing these.

This is a great chance to make a contribution to the community! Are you interested in helping green our favorite theater?
