The Hayes Valley parks are jewels in our neighborhood thanks to the efforts of HVNPG. Many thanks to all behind the scenes, most notably Barbara Wenger for making it all happen. It's a blessing for us to have safe, well-kept community areas available. I'm personally grateful not only to have Koshland Park at hand to do my Qigong and Tai Chi in but also to Barbara for initiating our group's original qigong class meetings at the park. They've led to an ongoing qigong and tai chi study group (newcomers are always welcome to drop in at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday mornings.) From the opportunities provided to local kids via the Learning Garden, to the chance to compost kitchen scraps, to the wonderful and inspiring Peace Wall we're all much richer for the under-provided-for HVNPG!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the truly rewarding experience of utilizing the parks.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the fact that they've managed to keep on keeping on. No small feat! Thanks for being there for us!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
enthusiastic, proactive and a pleasure to deal with. The garden staff and volunteers are wonderful and Barbara's a gem.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
General Member of the Public & I cherish the Hayes Valley parks, especially Koshland Park.
