Signs of a native spring can be found in the vacant lot on the corner of Kenyon and Kemper streets in the Midway District. According to a sign posted at the site, the San Diego Community College District planted native, low-growing, and drought-tolerant grasses on their West City Campus property to help protect against soil erosion. The various plantings are listed on the sign.
The windy corner next to a busy Vons shopping center is providing a nature experience for the congested neighborhood, with lots of birds, butterflies, and hummingbirds visiting the plot.
The "sustainable, self-regenerating natural erosion control solution" may not last long, as a "For Lease" sign is also posted on the property.
