MARCH 7: WESTBRAE NURSERY, 1272 Gilman Ave, Berkeley
The Nursery stands at the triple intersection of Masonic Ave, Santa Fe Ave,
and Gilman Street. In addition to the nursery grounds, scenic views are close
by in the Ohlone Greenway. Also, this bit of local art history—50 years ago
(1979!) on the west-facing wall of Berkeley Bagels (then Toot Sweets) public
artist John Wehrle first painted his homage to East Bay wetlands, “ancisco”.
Very Good Karma.
