PBTC Weed Abatement Efforts

As the City of San Diego falls behind on weed abatement, our all-volunteer PBTC 501(c)(3) is stepping up to get it done ourselves. Many of PB’s traffic medians have become severely overgrown with weeds, and PBTC is taking the lead with help from community volunteers to make a difference. Recent projects include medians along Garnet Avenue near Rose Creek, the Garnet Avenue/Balboa split, and Mission Bay Drive near the I-5 south ramp. Plus, on Sept. 26 we got rid of weeds on Soledad Mountain Road. It looks so much better now!

Would you please consider donating to help defray the cost of equipment and supplies? (Donations are tax-deductible.)

We recommend volunteers bring gardening gloves, sunscreen, visors or hats, and drinking water. Masks are mandatory when working near other people. We will have tools, but if you can bring brooms, dustpans, and loppers from home, this would ensure that we have enough tools for everyone.

Questions? Please call Ron Walker at (619) 977-4055.

Shown below are PBTC board members Brian White, Susan Crowers, Ron Walker, and Charlie Nieto getting after those weeds. There’s a LOT more to do, so please volunteer for our weed removal task force!


Below are some before-and-after photos of PBTC weed abatement efforts. What a difference! But the job is far from done, so we hope you’ll volunteer to help.
