The Pasadena Community Foundation approved the full $10,000 grant request to re-landscape the Pasadena Senior Center west and front gardens. Marco Barrantes of La Loma Development Company Inc. designed the plan. Execution of the plan was completed in June of 2011 by the City of Pasadena with participation from PBF members.
Project chair Wendy Crowley acknowledged Bette Cooper, Sylvia Hale and the Pasadena City staff for the successful collaboration in securing and implementing the grant.
The grant monies allowed PBF to pay the City for the installation and placement of a new irrigation system. Grant funds also paid for materials: drought-tolerant plants, two benches for bus riders and decomposed granite. Three trees will be purchased with monies from the Tree Fund.
