To make this location work, three young redwood trees will be removed. Three new redwood trees will be planted at Bayside Fields. Additional fencing will be installed to manage the garden. The Burlingame Community Garden will be managed by the Parks and Recreation Department but maintained by the members of the garden. The proposed planter box fee is $65 per year. The fee is expected to cover the costs of water, Glomstad wrote.
