Fence mending in Telegraph Hill

“Oh, come now, you don’t mean to let on that you like it?” The brush continued to move. “Like it? Well, I don’t see why I oughtn’t to like it. does a boy get a chance to whitewash a fence every day?” That put the thing in a new light. Ben stopped nibbling his apple. Tom swept his brush daintily back and forth - stepped back to note the effect - added a touch here and there - criticized the effect again - Ben watching every move and getting more and more interested, more and more absorbed. Presently he said: “Say, Tom, let me whitewash a little.”

Tamsin doesn't want you to miss your chance to mend a fence, no charge:

Dawn from Gardens for Learning will be leading a group to re-weave the fence in the African garden around the Equiano Plinth in Telegraph Hill lower park from 11am to 1pm on Saturday - all welcome to come and join in and learn more about the African planting.
