There is no other organization like this in the City! They are instrumental in bringing together community in the context of urban gardening. HVNPG effectively and creatively serves a diverse community while connecting with local schools, public housing, neighborhood groups and local merchants! The neighborhood and the City are richer because of this organization! Not to mention ma many youth that otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity get to learn how to grow food and then eat it and experience nature in the City!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
knowledgeable, creative and enthusiastic about their cause.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
make accessible the benefits of their programming to their entire community or district. They could help set up gardens and cooking/nutrition workshops on public housing sites, at community centers and in public parks!
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Professional with expertise in this field & I work at Garden For the Environment in San Francisco. We recently partnered with HVNPG to host an Urban Composting workshop in their community garden! They are fabulous to work with!.
