Rail-trail gardens in Solano, CA

The City Council on Tuesday is expected to approve an
agreement with local garden enthusiasts to plant and
maintain two community gardens along the city's
portion of the Rail Trail that will stretch from
Oceanside to San Diego.

The two gardens, north and south of Lomas Santa Fe
Drive, between the railroad tracks and Highway 101,
will be planted starting this month, said Gerri Retman
of Seaweeders, the group of gardeners that organized
the project.

The city already has donated $5,400 for the gardens,
which total 2,800 square feet and will be "working"
perennial flower gardens, she said.

"We're looking for experienced people to help with the
garden," Retman added.

Local businesses also have contributed to the project.
KRC Rock of San Marcos gave about $5,000 worth of
decorative boulders and flagstones for pathways;
Hunter Industries of San Marcos and Hydroscape of
Encinitas gave irrigation equipment; and A-1 Soils of
Lakeside donated compost.
