The next generation of community-minded residents is finding the gardens and art projects in the heart of Bayview, and contributing youthful energy to the work. These images by Rika Kruze show work happening at the Bridgeview Teaching and Learning Garden, including finishing touches on a unique bench, crafted from wood donated by neighbors, that artist Mark Baugh-Sasaki (pictured, bottom) has created.
Rika notes that 7 year old Serenity (pictured, middle) loves the garden across the street from her home. ("I taught her that Snapdragons snap open when you squeeze them.") She also observes that Hean He (pictured top), a frequent volunteer at the Quesada Gardens Initiative, and a Balboa High School student, "is an awesome worker."
Stop by the Bridgeview Garden soon, see all the new work, and share some love with the volunteers you are likely to see there.
