Volunteers from Bain & Company returned for a second time, on Friday August 9th, to pull and bag weeds, pick up litter, and prune back unruly plants.
The organizers at the Quesada and Bridgeview Gardens in the heart of San Francisco's Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood needed help clearing portions of the gardens on Quesada Avenue between 3rd Street and Newhall as they prepare for another volunteer day this Saturday when mulch will be spread.
"What a friendly and hardworking group of volunteers," Bridgeview Garden Project Leader Mary McClure said of the Bain & Company visitors.
Annual volunteerism is part of Bain & Company's commitment to social impact in the San Francisco Bay Area, according to the company's website.
|The organizers at the Quesada and Bridgeview Gardens in the heart of San Francisco's Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood really loved the help and warm group spirit.|
|What exactly are these things growing from the sides of palm trees? The mini-ecosystem on Quesada raised all sorts of good questions.|
|Overcast skies dominated the morning. But the friendly volunteers from Bain made it seem like a sunny day from start to finish.|
|The garden's soil is pretty hard now, and doesn't give up weeds easily. Shovels, rakes, and elbow grease carried the day!|
|The Canary Island Date Palm trees shelter several volunteers. Mick, pictured weeding, was at the gardens last year when Bain & Company helped out. Thanks, Mick!!|
|The heliotrope on Quesada got some friendly attention.|
|Mary McClure, Bridgeview Garden leader, talks with Franklin, a Bayview neighbor and avid gardener.|
|Rahul Golani did the organizing on the Bainies side of the partnership. Thanks, Rahul. Come back any time!|
