Volunteers keep Quesada beautiful

Volunteers from Leadership San Francisco, and their friends (pictured), spent a big chunk of time yesterday working in the Quesada Gardens food production patch. The strawberries, collard greens and other plants loved the company and attention.

Last Tuesday, a group from the University of San Francisco, organized by that school's Office of Service Learning, volunteered in the same area of the Quesada Garden.

Julie Reed, the office's director wrote, “Thank you for hosting us, teaching us, and especially inspiring us! Together we were reminded that weeds might be bad, but grassroots are very very good.”

Residents worked with these generous volunteers, and shared food afterwards, strengthening the bridge between Bayview and other parts of San Francisco.
