Quesada Gardens Initiative just got word it will receive a 2013 Environmental Achievement Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Pacific Southwest Region.
Quesada Gardens Initiative is the only San Francisco organization to be selected, and is one of eight awardees in the Pacific Southwest. The award recognizes exceptional work and commitment to protecting the environment and supporting communities.
"Award winners are leaders who are going above and beyond to make big moves to protect the environment and support local communities,” said Jared Blumenfeld, EPA’s Regional Administrator for the Pacific Southwest, in today's press release. “Work by these groups will leave a positive, lasting impact on us all for years to come."
Quesada Gardens Initiative and the organization's director Jeffrey Betcher were nominated for the award by Dr. Toye Moses, Executive Director of the Southeast Community Facility.
The award is not a monetary award. A presentation event is yet to be announced.
