Quesada Gardens wins national award
Our Bayview neighbor Quesada Gardens just won a national award for its innovative community-building efforts, all centered on urban gardens. Got ideas on how they should spend their $10,000 in garden products? Perhaps San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee offered tips when he accepted the award on their behalf in Washington DC last week from the U.S. Conference of Mayors and ScottsMiracle-Gro. The Gardens And Green Spaces Award, one of only 5 given in the US, will further Quesada’s mission. The grassroots organization is respected for the creation of community and backyard gardens, public gathering spaces, public art, and other projects that residents envision and implement for themselves.
Check out their phenomenal work to date at www.quesadagardens.org, and a great video featuring their signature Bridgeview Garden that encompasses a wide swath off Third St. Want a garden, or wanna garden? Shovels ready!
