Who we are

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and the city began mandating Shelter in Place orders, a core group of neighbors decided that getting together outdoors would foster a greater sense of community and hope. They put in place weekly social distanced meetups to focus on the median, and the beautification project soon flourished and progress became increasingly visible and inspirational. Improvements took the form of planting an array of drought-tolerant plants and clearing overgrown plants.

Now, this group is more than just a collection of neighbors – they are friends with a common purpose, a greater sense of community, and a unifying desire to be a force for positive change in their community with a vision for transforming their block into an inspiration for all of the South Side of San Francisco’s Potrero Hill!
