Community Grows
April 15, 2009

Committed caring people who care about our community and who are doing great work at getting kids and young people excited about caring for the parks and gardens in their community. Volunteering for HVNPG was a great experience and I encourage others to discover the great work they are doing right in our own backyard.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the parks and gardens in my own community and in the involvement of young people. It's refreshing to see high schoolers actively involved and taking pride in a community project.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

publicize our work more so the rest of the city is aware of our impact.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting my hands dirty.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, committed, positive, and hard working.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make San Francisco the capital of urban agriculture and teach San Francisco's youth to be food self-sufficient organic urban farmers of the future.

Ways to make it better...

San Francisco were a warmer climate.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding.
