Bayview’s Local Latona Community Garden Continues to Flourish

 

Last month we returned to our beloved Latona Community Garden in San Francisco’s Bayview District for a spring party. Scores of local families came to the festive event, which included free face painting, egg decorating, crafts and lots of donated fresh healthy food, as well as a fundraising raffle, local speakers, plantings and compost education.

For decades this small patch of land functioned as a blighted dumping ground, replete with mounds of nasty garbage and noxious weeds. My spouse and I helped to transform and create this shared neighborhood space several years ago, so it was especially gratifying to see that the urban garden is continuing to thrive.

Many different people worked together to create the social spring garden party on Latona Street, including our old friend Jeffrey Betcher and the Quesada Gardens Initiative. Other organizations who helped out include the Girls 2000 program from Hunters Point Family, SEFA Food Guardians, SF Environment, Seed Library SF, as well as student volunteers from the University of San Francisco.

Here are more photographs from the recent community gathering in our old San Francisco neighborhood garden:
