Quesada Gardens Initiative wins 2012 GRO1000 Award

This is HUGE!!  Congratulations, Quesada Gardens Initiative!!

The United States Conference of Mayors has bestowed upon San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee's office the 2012 GRO1000 Gardens and Green Spaces Grant Award to be used by the Quesada Gardens Initiative!  The GRO1000 Award is sponsored by Scotts Miracle-Gro and the U.S. Conference of Mayors.  The five award-winning cities were determined by an independent panel of judges selected by the U.S. Conference of Mayors.  Awards will be officially announced at the annual Winter meeting  in Washington, DC on Thursday, January 19, 2012.

Award winners each receive grants in the amount of $25,000 ($15,000 in cash and $10,000 in-kind product provided by Scotts Miracle-Gro).  Look for a local dedication event sometime this Spring.

The Quesada Gardens Initiative is a community-based non-profit located in the Bayview district of San Francisco.  It began ten years ago on the 1700 block of Quesada Ave, and has grown to include over 30  art, garden, and community projects throughout the district.
