COMMUNITY HOUSINGWORKS FALL 2011 FACELIFT

Thanks to all the wonderful volunteers and sponsors who made the Fall 2011 FaceLift the biggest and best ever. We were focused on 46th Street between Home Avenue and Olive Street. Twelve homes received full paint jobs and one received a drought tolerant landscape designed by landscape designers David Clarke and Lisa Bellora. Because we were directly across Swan Canyon from Hamilton Elementary, where the City Heights Canyons and Communities Alliance (Ocean Discovery Institute, San Diego Canyonlands, Park and Rec Open Space Rangers, Project CLEAN and Carey Construction and Design) has focused a great deal of attention, we on the FaceLift Committee decided to include a huge canyon component with this FaceLift. On our October 15 Handy Day, our pre-FaceLift event, we had 140 Point Loma Nazarene University volunteers remove a stand of Arundo and a stand of Castor bean invasive plants, build a rail fence, line a trail with river rock, create wire cages for planting in a gopher infested hillside, and spread mulch, making a former dump site into an inviting canyon entrance. 736 volunteers joined us on FaceLift Day to paint, clean up and landscape 13 homes on 46th St., clean up the median and finish the canyon planting for a total of 876 volunteers converging on a block in City Heights, all with the mission at heart of making the world a better place. 46th Street Homes on Swan Canyon

Fall FaceLift Contributors

Besides our sponsors, we have many contributors and partners who bring incredible synergy to the mix. Councilmember Todd Gloria and the Todd Squad provided dump passes and recruited Edco, Allied Waste and Debris Box to provide eight free bins, San Diego Canyonlands crew helped with prep and follow-up work, Ranger Sue Pelley oversaw the canyon work, Metropolitan Waste Water brought boulders to discourage chronic dumping at the Olive canyon entrance and Easy Turf gave us a big discount on some artificial grass provided to one of our families. Sixty UPS volunteers came from all over Southern California and a member of the U.S. Bank Team and his son rescued a nice doggie that was running around. All of these pieces and more are what makes FaceLift such a great project. Thanks to all who helped.

Only run the dishwasher or clothes washer when you have a full load (and use cups, clothes, etc. more than once if they aren't truly dirty). Install low-flow shower heads, low-flow faucet aerators, high-efficiency toilets, and water-wise appliances. Place a bucket in the shower to catch the water while it's warming up, then pour it on a tree or shrub. Turn off the water while shampooing, shaving, brushing your teeth, rinsing produce, and washing dishes. Repair all leaky faucets, pipes, fixtures, and irrigation systems promptly. Use a broom, not a hose, to clean sidewalks, driveways, and patios. Pour unused drinking water in a pet's bowl or a watering can for your plants. Wash your car at a commercial car wash that recycles its used water. Replace grass with native low-water plants, artificial turf, or even wood chips (Bonus: No more mowing or weed-whipping!). Feed a worm bin or a compost pile instead of your garbage disposal.
