Mysterious Pole Gardener Sprouts in the Richmond District

Posted By on Mon, Aug 27, 2012 at 8:00 AM

The last time we told you about a decorated pole in the Richmond District, we were referring to the mobile strippers who definitely injected new life into the neighborhood.

But we're guessing Supervisor Eric Mar will be a little less offended by the latest crop of vibrant bushes spotted along Clement Street as of late.  We caught sight of the work of the covert "pole gardener" on RichmondSFBlog, which posted these photos of the botanical brouhaha.

According to the neighborhood blog, the mysterious planter insists on remaining anonymous until they can be sure the MTA and Supervisor Mar won't come after them. Until the government strips the Richmond of this beauty, neighbors declare they will enjoy every damn minute of this luscious landscape (at least the minutes they paid for).

Comments, per the RicgmondSFBlog:

In any event, we're glad to see someone trying to make parking in San Francisco a little more bearable for us all.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
