When the Community Living Campaign first began, we looked for ways to talk with people in neighborhoods across the City. To start, we needed places that were free (because we were just starting out), physically accessible, and inviting. So where did we begin? In the City’s lovely community gardens. CLC Special Projects Coordinator Judy Auda helped keep the effort going as we shared food, hospitality and ways to build community from the “grassroots”. Some were big, some were small, but all reminded us how nice it is share time with one another – no agendas, no required outcomes, just be. We invite you to check out these early events and the beautiful gardens that bloom as our own neighborhood backyards at www.seedsofhope-sf.blogspot.com .
