Latona Garden's new project leader

The Latona Community Garden, star of the SF Chronicle and grateful residents along Latona, Thornton and 3rd Street has a new best friend.

Rita Collins, a longtime Bayview resident and a landscape gardener, is the new project leader for this charming mixed-use space where double-height raised planting beds make a home alongside a children's play space and a gathering area for block celebrations.

The garden has involved dozens of residents in the immediate area, and was a labor of love for project leaders Rhonda Winter and Peter Haas who moved from the area last year.

Rita has loads of experience, unparalleled community spirit, and great ideas for the garden. She is talking with neighbors about what they would like to see happen at the garden, and about how they want to be involved. Email her with any ideas or just to say "thank you."
