Get Some Mulch for Your Garden

Mulch is the best stuff for your garden. It's made up of a nutrient-rich blend of tree trimmings from the City's street trees. This Friday the Department of Pulic Works is making this garden food available to Pasadena residents. It is recommended that residents bring a shovel, containers, gloves and eye protection to take advantage of this program.  For more information click here.

The Civic Center Turns into a Vibrant Public Forum

Pasadena’s Civic Center District will be transformed into a magical world of giant roto-scoped animated images projected up to 20 feet tall outside City Hall, the Police Department and Central Library during the free “Roto Pasadena” public art event, 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Saturday, August 13. The public is invited to stroll down Garfield Avenue to watch the bold, colorful, hand-traced animated videos depicting residents, police officers and City elected officials presented in the unique rotoscoping digital format based on live action video interviews. Three different videos, about three minutes to five minutes in length, will be projected and re-shown continuously during the event onto the front entry area of the Central Library, in the courtyard entrance outside the Police Department building and on an exterior wall of the historic Pasadena City Hall building.
