Leadership SF visits Quesada Garden

Sixty local leaders, who are part of an organization dedicated to "developing community trustees," visiting the Quesada Gardens Initiative this morning. They represent the 2008-2009 class of Leadership San Francisco, an affiliate of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce.

Pictured, James Ross (red shirt), co-founder and co-organizer of QGI, tells the group a bit about the history of the 1700 block of Quesada Avenue in Bayview, and about the social transformation that has happened there.

This is the second year in a row that Leadership SF participants have visited the Quesada Gardens Initiative's cluster of community-building projects in the heart of the neighborhood. Once again, they heard about, and saw the impact that low-cost strengthening of social cohesion and highly-localized systems can have.
