Earlier this week we told you about the mini gardens that are popping up on parking meters and poles along the early blocks of Clement Street. Most readers left comments of praise for the beautification efforts, some reviews were more mixed.
A mysterious commenter known only as “pole gardener” left a comment on the story to let us know he was behind them, writing ““I’m glad you like the gardens, I’m the person putting them up. I would invite all of you to maintain/adopt them as you see fit.”
KTVU news ran a piece on the story which you can watch here. They spoke to some store owners and residents to get their reactions on the mini gardens.
And today, the Daily Mail Online in the UK ran a story on the pole gardens, writing “a Good Samaritan with a green thumb is showing the city of San Francisco some love.”
KTVU reached out to city officials who say they have no plans to tear down the tiny treasures so love ’em or not, they’ll be around for awhile. Let’s see if our mysterious pole gardener keeps on growing!
