A series of free hands-on gardening workshops will take place at Bayview’s Quesada Gardens next month, part of a partnership between Quesada Gardens and San Francisco's premiere demonstration garden, Garden for the Environment.

Never mind that Garden for the Environment's education hub is on 7th Avenue and Lawton. Nate Perry, a Garden Educator with the organization, is up for making the trek to the southeast. Nate will be working with Quesada Gardens' resident Patrick Rhodes to create an interactive experience that teaches gardening basics while providing a practical benefit to the gardens in the heart of Bayview.

Bayview Hunters Point residents and fans are encouraged to sign up online for the workshops right away as space is limited. Workshops topics include "Grow Food!" "Garden Maintenance," and "Water-wise Gardening."

Nate recently completed a San Francisco Botanical Garden internship in the Mesoamerican Cloud Forest, and is a graduate of the City College Horticulture Program and the Gardening and Composting Educator Program.

Quesada Gardens’ workshop coordinator Patrick Rhodes lives at the Quesada Gardens and regularly leads teams of volunteers and neighborhood youth. He completed GFE’s Get-Up course and 18 Reasons’ Farm School, and is accepted into the Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems program at UC Santa Cruz.

Certificates of Completion awarded to participants who attend all three workshops. The partnership is supported by SF Parks Alliance which is funded by Metta Fund.
