Annual Dahlia Dell Digout in Golden Gate Park
January 9, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm| Free
Please join us in volunteering at the 24th annual Dahlia Dell Digout in Golden Gate Park, hosted by the Dahlia Society of California and SFRPD. Located in the northeastern corner of Golden Gate Park (near the Conservatory of Flowers), the Dahlia Garden celebrates the official flower of San Francisco with a diverse spread of colors that grow in a thick, fenced-in treasure trove of blooms. Dahlias have had a dedicated plot near the Conservatory of Flowers since the mid 1920’s. Volunteers will receive free training in dahlia growing, through hands-on experience in with digging tuber clumps, raking, weeding and labeling tubers. Please wear sturdy closed-toe footwear and warm clothes [long-sleeve shirts and pants]. If you have them, bring gloves and pruning shears. The event occurs rain or shine. Lunch and light refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 415-831-6333.
You will find the Dahlia Dell located between two walking paths that lead east from the Conservatory of Flowers. By car, drive towards Conservatory Drive East or JFK Drive – you will find parking along Conservatory Drive East. There is no sign identifying the garden, so look for the single picnic table as you walk down the paths.
Organized in 1917, the Dahlia Society of California (DSC) is the San Francisco chapter of the American Dahlia Society. For more information, go to the website: www.sfdahlias.org.
